A major monograph on the Dutch garden architect, presenting his gardens and the largest collection of his drawings ever published.

Step into a garden by Piet Oudolf and you will be transported to a dreamlike meadow landscape full of perennials, seasonal colors and textures. This book, created in close collaboration with Oudolf, features gardens from across his career and from around the world - from the acclaimed High Line in New York to the newly created Vitra Campus in Germany. The book offers new insights into Oudolf's work and creative practice, both from a horticultural and artistic point of view, and introduces well-known and lesser-known gardens, including Chicago's Lurie Garden, Hauser & Wirth Somerset and Menorca, the Venice Biennale, the Singer Museum, Belle Isle in Detroit, Noma and others.

It offers an unprecedented insight into his design process, working methods and inspirations, and includes original sketches and drawings, many of which are published here for the first time. This important new monograph is significant not only for its size and the largest collection of Oudolf's drawings ever published, but also for its inclusion of brand new work as well as newly commissioned essays that put his work in context and offer new perspectives bid on his career and importance. The book also contains folding cards and inserts that explain important designs.
