London: Thames & Hudson, 1993. Cloth. Very Good/Good. 0500015759 Well illustrated, large square 8vo, pp 112, a very good copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper.[Intriguing and strangely magnetic, cabins fulfil the longing in all of us to indulge again in our childhood reveries of secret hideaways, built of branches and leaves or whatever is to hand; to enter our own private world; to commune with nature and with our own selves. Hidden in the forest, up in the treetops, by the side of still or moving water, down at the end of the garden, the cabin is the most magical of dwellings. Magical, but real too, as these photos from all over the world testify: fishing cabins in Maine; the shed in Wales to which Dylan Thomas retreated to write; hides built by wild duck hunters in France, Finnish saunas, and English beach huts. The search for solitude, the need to throw off the trappings of worldly life, has produced some of the world's most romantic and beguiling buildings. Brought together here, they remind us of that wilder side of human nature which we all recognize and perhaps seek to nourish more. Their mixture of charm, eccentricity and improvisation has truly universal appeal.] (Book ref. 008514)

[Books on container gardening have been wildly popular with urban and suburban readers, but until now, there has been no comprehensive "how-to" guide for growing fresh food in the absence of open land. This book fills the gap as a practical, comprehensive, and downright fun guide to growing food in small spaces. It provides readers with the knowledge and skills necessary to produce their own fresh vegetables, mushrooms, sprouts, and fermented foods as well as to raise bees and chickens--all without reliance on energy-intensive systems like indoor lighting and hydroponics.Readers will learn how to transform their balconies and windowsills into productive vegetable gardens, their countertops and storage lockers into commercial-quality sprout and mushroom farms, and their outside nooks and crannies into whatever they can imagine, including sustainable nurseries for honeybees and chickens. Free space for the city gardener might be no more than a cramped patio, balcony, rooftop, windowsill, hanging rafter, dark cabinet, garage, or storage area, but no space is too small or too dark to raise food.With this book as a guide, people living in apartments, condominiums, townhouses, and single-family homes will be able to grow up to 20 percent of their own fresh food using a combination of traditional gardening methods and space-saving techniques such as reflected lighting and container "terracing." Those with access to yards can produce even more.Author R. J. Ruppenthal worked on an organic vegetable farm in his youth, but his expertise in urban and indoor gardening has been hard-won through years of trial-and-error experience. In the small city homes where he has lived, often with no more than a balcony, windowsill, and countertop for gardening, Ruppenthal and his family have been able to eat at least some homegrown food 365 days per year. In an era of declining resources and environmental disruption, Ruppenthal shows that even urban dwellers can contribute to a rebirth of local, fresh foods.] (Book ref. 008512)

[Green in the garden is at once the most common colour of foliage and the rarest colour found in flowers. Whether you're a gardener looking for a jolt of freshness or a floral designer seeking inspiration, this charming collection of unexpected plants provides a palette of flowering greens for year-round display. Combining Marie O'Hara's sumptuous photography and Alison Hoblyn's evocative text, Green Flowers explores the history, botany, care and cultivation of green-flowered plants. The hand-picked selection includes trees, grasses, vines and climbers, annuals, perennials, bulbs, wildflowers, exotics, orchids, edible plants and water garden plants. The appeal of the selection is broad: Jack-in-the-pulpit provides curiosity, fritillaries and columbines lend quiet beauty and green roses, hellebores and irises are an excellent foil to their more colourful companions. Eighty-four plants are included in all. Complete tips on growing and arranging the plants are given for each entry, as well as insight into the plants' myths, history and lore.] (Book ref. 008511)
