It's still best to stay at home, so we will continue to encourage you to shop from home on our website, by email, and by phone. We will continue to offer curbside pickup in our “book cooler” out front for as long as it is needed. Please keep sending orders our way.  Your loyalty and support are our bridge to a post-COVID19 future.

For all visitors:

  • Customers will be required to wear masks. Our booksellers will be doing the same.
  • You’ll be asked to sanitize your hands upon arrival. There will be an optional log at the hand sanitizing station where you can list your name and phone number (in case we are asked to do contact tracing).
  • Please limit your time in the store to no more than 25 minutes.
  • We are limiting browsers to five at a time in the store. There will be five shopping baskets at our front entrance. If there is an available basket, you are clear to enter and shop. If there are no free baskets, we ask that you wait outside until one is free. Baskets will be sanitized between customers. 
  • Children are required to wear a mask. If your child cannot reliably wear a mask, we ask that they do not enter the shop.
  • Please maintain social distancing (6 feet between shoppers).

Stay safe, and be well, 


A Field Guide to Patricia Johanson's Works (Not autographed)

SKU: 000139

This Field Guide to Patricia Johanson's built and unbuilt projects aims to capture her thought process in the act of drawing. Each project, whether built or not, owes its inception to the series of 150+ garden designs she produced in 1969 as a result of a House & Garden commission. Her "Plant Drawings and Models" of the 70s and 80s and later design proposals reiterate concepts first developed during her late twenties. Since the mid-80s, she's successfully implemented and tested many of her early ideas. This field guide not only provides relevant background material for each of her built projects and many that remain unbuilt, but it furnishes travel tips for those eager to experience her immersive works first-hand, as they are meant to be engaged. A visit to any of her built projects can easily be combined with a visit to a nearby art attraction.
