This beautifully produced book is sculptor David Nash’s response to the three hundred year old yews in the gardens of Powis Castle. After decades – in some cases centuries – without trimming some twenty yews by the castle have grown into fantastic, organic shapes not usually associated with the formally trained yews of traditional gardens.
The plasticity of these striking trees instantly challenged Nash when he first saw them: now the resulting drawings, reliefs and sculptures are collected here, together with a brief essay by Nash and a short history of the Powis Castle gardens by art historian Sarah Blomfield.
With bilingual text in English and Welsh, printed on high quality paper and case bound in fine linen this exclusive book is sought after by readers interested in art and gardens alike.
