John Brookes, MBE, "the man who made the modern garden", died on Friday 16 March after a short illness. John was a delightful man. We spent a happy evening with him at the Garden Museum last month, at an event hosted by Tim Richardson. A retrospective of John Brookes' work continues at the Garden Museum until 25 March.
We are very proud to be the publisher of John's memoir A Landscape Legacy, and so pleased that he was able to see the finished book before he died. A Landscape Legacy is published in April 2018.
More details about our books can be found in our Spring 2018 catalogue, which can be downloaded from the site, and on the Books tab.
