    From the gardens of ancient Egypt to the arts and crafts creations of Edwardian England, green sculpture has been clipped into shape. With its bold silhouettes, topiary is an icon that defines the hand of man in creating gardens, expressing the gardener’s ideas and firing the observer’s imagination. In this book, informative photographs offer ideas and starting points for creating your personal topiary work, while guidelines to creating specific shapes and designs are set out in simple diagrams that illustrate the stages of transformation from unruly shrub to stylized art form.
