Gardens of Delight
The Great Islamic Gardens
This book is an introduction to the art of Oriental garden architecture. It is divided into four sections starting with medieval Spain, courtyard gardens from Syria, old and new gardens in Morocco and the last section deals with the large parks and mausoleum gardens in Pakistan and India.

This wonderfully illustrated book will give garden lovers great joy and delight as it illustrates how gardens are frequently better than any other form of architecture at resisting change and destruction.

Great source of visual inspiration!
