La Foce: A Garden and Landscape in Tuscany (Penn Studies in Landscape Architecture)

by Benedetta Origo (Editor), Laurie Olin, John Dixon Hunt, Morna Livingston

Amazon Reader’s Review: “La Foce is an attractive Tuscan villa which is presented here in text and pictures. The text offers a picture of one family’s history, including interesting archival photographs and drawings. What makes this book truly spectacular, however, are Morna Livingston’s photographs, presented in a beautiful layout and printed on a silky white paper which heightens the luminesence of the incredible Tuscan colors. In more than one hundred photographs Livingiston captures the villa’s gardens in every light and season. There are stunning images of the broader landscape and fascinating details of both the architecture and the plants. For those who have wondered just what the attraction of Tuscany is, you will find the answer here. For those who already know, this will serve as a reminder.”
