Reviews

Wonderfully rich and packed with vivid details...The Arcadian Friends deserves to become a classic
*Guardian*

The Arcadian Friends offers an invigorating new approach to familiar garden history territory. In the company of his large cast, Richardson guides us deftly through varied landscapes full of surprises.
*Sunday Telegraph*

Replete with first-rate scholarship... there are many delights here
*Literary Review*

Richardson explains this with verve and enthusiasm, and a measure of his success is that he makes the reader want to visit, or revisit, the gardens he describes
*Telegraph*

Wonderfully engaging... This book gives us a way to read the landscape and see again what the original owners intended.
*Spectator*
