LINDA JANE HOLDEN

VENDOME PRESS | $60

Throughout her long and storied life, Rachel “Bunny” Mellon’s greatest passion was garden design. She and her husband, Paul Mellon, one of the wealthiest men in the USA, maintained homes in New York, Cape Cod, Nantucket, Antigua, and Upperville,, illustrated with Bunny’s own garden plans, sketches and watercolors. Author Linda Holden’s text is based on extensive interviews with Bunny before her death in 2014. With so many gardens to discover, there really is something for everyone.
