Gardens of Delight
A Pop-up Anthology of Romantic Verse & Paper FlowersBook - 1997
These six exquisite, three-dimensional garden scenes will refresh the eye and delight the heart. Glowing with richly colored blossoms, the lavish garden settings center on a wisteria-covered cupola, a plashing, bird-decked fountain, an ivy-covered wall, or, in one spectacular case, a trellised arbor with a full working swing. Artfully crafted by the noted paper engineer Keith Moseley and painted by award-winning artist Robert Nicholls, the imaginative garden creations accompany verses by such poets as Christina Rossetti, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Amy Lowell, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Coventry Patmore. Together, images and words convey all the love and beauty that a real garden can express - and the blooms will never fade.
