Quincy Jones, and John Lautner. Featuring Julius Shulman's iconic black-and-white photographs of the original gardens as well as Tim Street-Porter's crisp color images of contemporary restorations and updates, Private Landscapes shows why these gardens continue to provide inspiration for gardeners and designers everywhere.
