FOUNTAINS AND WATER FEATURES
Bibliophile price: £4.00
Natural springs, water jets, rills and cascades all incorporate moving water and water features within architectural structures probably originated in Greece and Asia Minor. They originated as a simple provision of water in arid places and evolved into manifestations of capricious delight and extravagant displays of wealth and power. Fountain development in Great Britain was strongly influenced by travellers from Europe during and after the Renaissance and later landscape designers established a more naturalistic trend in garden design. From mythical illusion through private pleasure gardens to contemporary civic display we travel to every county in this photographic guide. Enjoy grotto archways with water splashes, cascades by 'Capability' Brown at Harewood House in West Yorkshire to the geometric pools and fountain jets of the water parterre at Blenheim Palace. 64 page Shire publication, teeming with colour and other photos.
