      "This lavishly illustrated book is a pictorial documentation of the great garden architecture of Islam. The reader is taken on a journey to the medieval Spain of the Moors, followed by the gardens of the 18th and the 19th century. The journey continues through the courtyard gardens of Syria and the unique old and new gardens of Morocco, ending with the impressive courtyards and mausoleum gardens of Pakistan and India. Every garden is described individually, many with plans of the layout, and its exact location. Gardens of Delight is truly a unique publication!"
