2018 sees the bi-centenary of the death of the landscape designer Humphry Repton (1752-1818). This book provides a fascinating insight into the unique range of gardens and landscapes Repton designed in and around the capital. His 50 plus commissions within the London Boroughs ranged from classic garden squares such as Russell Square and contemporary villas through to large landscapes such as that at Kenwood.

Reproducing images from two of the customised Red Books and from his formal publications, this beautifully illustrated book sheds light on Repton’s work that has not previously received such detailed scrutiny.

Price: £15.00 + £2.28 P&P.
