Reviews
"The illustrations in the books are a volume in themselves: a valuable archive of early photographs, excellent plans and maps. There are useful appendices with a comparative chart of the experiments, and the design and production are first class.""Seven American Landscapes" is an exemplary book; provoking, scholarly, and utterly engrossing."--"Landscape Architecture"
"As a manual for new life styles and their manifestation in design the book is illuminating. The communitarians themselves are an attractive lot with their commitment to the land, their aim to integrate city and country, their concern with a design for life. The text on these groups and the ample photographs and diagrams are striking testimony to an imaginative use of stock styles and a vital search for something other than the customary American design for exploiting the land."--"The Nation"
