This stunningly illustrated book closely examines the work of six influential women landscape designers: Beatrix Farrand, Martha Hutcheson, Marian Coffin, Ellen Shipman, Ruth Dean, and Annette Hoyt Flanders, in addition to a dozen more landscape architects of a second generation who pioneered the professionalization of women in the field. Through the lens of their Long Island commissions (which made up the greater part of their work), this book brings these women to life and highlights their significant contributions to a new profession.
