Out Now Nature's Favourite Child: Thomas Robins and the Art of the Georgian Garden Cathryn Spence

a rare glimpse into the lost Rococo gardens of the mid 18th century Country Life Magazine

Forgotten for almost 200 years, a new biography by Cathryn Spence charts the varied career of this most gifted of Rococo artists, Thomas Robins.

Robins made delicate watercolours of gardens caught at that moment in the mid 18th century when sinuous layouts glittered with garden buildings of every conceivable style — chinoiserie tea houses, Gothic summer-houses, Turkish tents and Classical temples — the so-called ‘Rococo Gardens’. His views are matchless records of gardens either long gone or now in decay. Without them, we would know next to nothing about this short-lived period of garden history.

Out Now Tim Pomeroy Nicholas Usherwood David Bell

Working in marble, granite, sandstone and wood, Tim Pomeroy’s beautifully carved and polished work is a paean to sacred forms and natural wonders. It’s a measure too of his unflinching determination to learn and master the skills needed. His font for St Andrew’s Cathedral comes from learning the stonemason’s craft and, like the fountain for Provand’s Lordship in Glasgow, is distinctly his in form and thought: fresh ideas laid on timeless beauty.
