Author(s): DEBORAH SCHENCK
A beautifully illustrated book, Fern House is a first person narrative about a year in Deborah Schenck's Vermont garden. Broken into four seasonal sections, her inspiring reflections on gardening are paired with her lush Polaroid transfers and soft watercolor illustrations. Each section features in introduction to gardening in that particular season and each page is a crystalized moment bringing the reader into the experience of gardening. This book will be a perfect gift for the artist and gardner alike.
