Landscaper Gilles Clément joins forces with illustrator Vincent Gravé to create a monthly journal for gardeners everywhere. The lush and colourful drawings contain thousands of tiny details, while poetic texts provide information on a wide range of subjects, including insects, winter, vegetable gardens and fruit. The tiny figure of the Gardener guides readers through this spectacular large-format book, with which these talented artists show their love for nature.
