Summary
Illustrated with hundreds of exceptional photographs by award-winning photographer Clive Nichols, and drawing on nearly forty years of exploration by Louisa Jones, this book offers a fresh vision of the Mediterranean, past and future, linking cultural diversity and natural balance as discovered in its gardens, landscape design, literature, art and architecture. Divided into eleven sections built around themes such as stoneworks, earthworks, woodworks and seascapes, each of the featured works observes the logic of place as determined by climate, geology, flora and fauna, architecture and land use
