Illustrated love stories that take you on a journey through gardens across the world.
This charming set of illustrated stories takes you on a guided tour through the historic tombs of the Lodhi Garden in New Delhi, the magnificent ruins of the Forum Romanum in Rome, the deliberately designed natural landscape of Central Park in New York, and the topiary oddities of the Hanging Gardens in Mumbai. This unusual itinerary takes the characters on a journey of self-discovery which unfolds through conversations that gradually reveal the drama of their personal lives, of a marriage made and unmade, and made again. Their walks through vast swathes of history are complemented by exquisite pen and ink drawings.
