(Paris): Les Presses de la Connaissance 1977. First edition. Lassus, who certainly ranks among France's most original and provocative modern landscape architects, has presented here a fascinating photographic study and analysis of several contemporary French regional and suburban gardens which were created entirely outside of either conventional or avant-garde aesthetic rules. These are private gardens of pure child-like imagination, full of sculptural figures of fantasy (Snow White, pink flamingoes, multi-colored gnomes), riotous color, and incongruous planting schemes. 4to (32.5 x 23.8 cm); 191 + (1) pp. profusely illustrated from black and white and color photographs and from plans.
