Very sweet book

This is a very sweet collection of pictures. I like it for garden ideas for my cottage style home.

Victorian Cottages by Andrew Clayton-Payne

This is a wonderful book for the lover of the old English cottage painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is filled with full colored pictures on every page of the paintings and describes life in these times. A great addition to anyone's library who is interested in these times and the painter's who so aptly captured a way of life long gone. Paintings by Allingham, Strachan, Stannard, Foster and others are included.
