Glasshouse Greenhouse fuses together cultures and countries under one glass roof. In their debut book, photographers India Hobson and Magnus Edmondson take you on a worldwide journey through their favourite botanical spaces.
The Haarkon Greenhouse Tour began as a self-initiated adventure in Oxford’s botanic garden four years ago. Since then, Magnus and India have visited countless locations in the UK, Europe, America, Asia and beyond in search of dream glasshouses and greenhouses, capturing dramatic palm houses, tropical hothouses and private potting sheds along the way.
Divided into seven thematic chapters – History, Specimen, Community, Research, Pleasure, Hobbyist and Architecture – the featured spaces in Glasshouse Greenhouse are depicted via a series of photo-essays that draw out the style, plant collections and character of each space.
‘The authors have a talent for storytelling through images…the photography throughout is exceptional.’
‘[I]ts dreamy, contemplative feel will transport the houseplant lover to the warm fug of a greenhouse on the coldest winter day.’
