With lustrous collages and intimate prose, acclaimed printmaker Helen Stewart has composed A Garden’s Echo, a gorgeous book made to cherish.
Through her warm voice and intimate images the artist tells a story of a nearly forgotten past, of her china-painting great-grandmother, of two men, twin bankers, the sons of an important nurseryman, of George Eastman’s flower photography, and of herself struggling on her farm…
Through it all flash the genetic links of generations of flower lovers, and a family inheritance that ranges across North America. This book is Helen Stewart’s exquisite, earthy garden on paper.
