In the country and at home, seasons pass by. This book is about home gardens and how you can make them grow month after month: from the first seeds chosen in January to the last practical suggestions of December, to the terrarium in July to the potpourri in August. Combining fun and wonder for nature, the classical and delicate illustrations by Tina Davis accompany the reader discovering how gentle and lush a flower can be. From the theory of “what is a seed” to the practice of “tools you may need”, the plant comes up and grows little by little, like a silent and beautiful marvel everybody can admire. After Guarda e cucina (2006) and Guarda e cuci (2006), Guarda e coltiva is the third book by Tina Davis dedicated to working and learning together for both children and adults. Tina Davis is graphic designer, lives and works between Israel and New York. She studied at Yale and the Rhode Island School of Design, and collaborates with the most important american publisher, such as Knopf, Abrams and Chronicle.
