"The idea for this book emerged during the Garden's fiftieth anniversary in 2009. Shortly thereafter, the NYU Langone Medical Center announced plans to use the space occupied by the Garden and the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, with which it was associated, for a new medical pavilion ... before the demolition crews could arrive, Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on lower Manhattan in October 2012 and flooded many structures along the East River, including the Garden, the Rusk Institute, and much of the NYU Langone Medical Center. Plans to gradually wind down the Garden were suddenly made irrelevant. Within a matter of days, a concerted effort by staff and volunteers managed to relocate all the plants and animals to new homes. With the conservatory and outdoor gardens heavily dmaged, the decision was made not to reopen the Glass Garden. The work of the Glass Garden, embodied in the skills and dedication of the horticultural therapists, staff, and volunteers who made it such a special place, continues. Horticultural activities are provided now on a patient-by-patient basis throughout the Medical Center. And future plans that call for smaller pocket gardens could offer patients, their families, and staff some measure of the restorative and healing effects of nature. We offer this book as a record of what the Glass Garden was and what it accomplished in its fifty-year history. And we hope it serves as a source of inspiration and ideas for many years to come."--Introduction.

Elegant and magnificent, conservatories reveal fascinating social, cultural, botanical, and engineering advances as they have evolved across history. First appearing in the eighteenth century as simple structures designed to protect fruit trees and other delicate plants from harsh European winters, conservatories became grand glass houses that spread across the European continent, to the Americas, and ultimately around the world. Through evocative archival and contemporary photographs, drawings of landmark structures, and graceful, accessible text,The Conservatory celebrates the patrons and designers who advanced the technology and architectural majesty of these light-filled structures. The importance of conservatories continues to grow with efforts to conserve phenomenal plants and their environments.

Gardens of Glass is the first comprehensive collection of comics by Lando, bringing together the very best of his short works produced over the last five years for Decadence Comics, the influential publishing collective he co-founded with Stathis Tsemberlidis. Blending Ballardian contemplation of the near future with the aesthetics of early European sci-fi comics, Lando's incredibly meticulous, impossibly fine pen line describes the deserted world that follows the Anthropocene epoch, where warfare, class division and ecological collapse dominate the landscape.

Originally meant to trap bad spirits, bottle trees arrived in the U.S. with the African slave trade and first took root in the South. Now it's a popular art form, a national phenomenon that's showing up at garden shows, craft fairs and farmers markets. Garden writer and photographer Felder Rushing has encountered thousands of bottle trees and other glass garden art in his travels across America and around the world. In BOTTLE TREES he presents 60 of his favorites, from the backyards of Mississippi to the Chelsea Flower Show to the glass fantasies of Dale Chihuly. With humor and affection he tells the stories behind the photographs: the history and lore of bottle trees and glass sculpture, and the inspired people who make them.

House of Glass

June 1914 and a young woman - Clara Waterfield - is summoned to a large stone house in Gloucestershire. Her task: to fill a greenhouse with exotic plants from Kew Gardens, to create a private paradise for the owner of Shadowbrook. Yet, on arrival, Clara hears rumours: something is wrong with this quiet, wisteria-covered house. Its gardens are filled with foxgloves, hydrangea and roses; it has lily-ponds, a croquet lawn - and the marvellous new glasshouse awaits her. But the house itself feels unloved. Its rooms are shuttered, or empty. The owner is mostly absent; the housekeeper and maids seem afraid. And soon, Clara understands their fear: for something - or someone - is walking through the house at night. In the height of summer, she finds herself drawn deeper into Shadowbrook's dark interior - and into the secrets that violently haunt this house. Nothing - not even the men who claim they wish to help her - is quite what it seems. Reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier, this is a wonderful, atmospheric Gothic page-turner.
