"Clare Leighton was one of the finest engravers of the twentieth century. In the 1930s, when she settled in the countryside with her long-term partner, the political journalist Henry Noel Brailsford, she turned her creativity to the land. Gardening became her passion. Her obsession ... By observing the seasonal changes in the garden, she grew familiar with its wildlife and character, forming a bond which fed her work as an artist and contributed to the happiest years of her life. Illustrated with her own ... engravings, this is the story of the garden she carved from meadowland deep in England's Chiltern Hills"--Publisher's description
