RHS Herbs for the Gourmet Gardener Reviews

...Satisfyingly put together, with beautiful patterned and textured hardback covers and a ribbon for finding your way back to a chosen page....There are very few photographs, instead relying heavily on botanical artists for their depictions of the plants, a lovely touch that serves both to unify the look of the books and to bestow upon them a sort of Victorian sensibility that plays nicely on the Society's history and image....useful, endlessly interesting and very good-looking... * Gardeners Illustrated *
