ex horto: Dumbarton Oaks Texts in Garden and Landscape Studies

Classic works on the philosophy, art, and techniques of landscape design

Ex horto is devoted to classic works on the philosophy, art, and techniques of landscape design. Augmented with contemporary scholarly commentary, the series offers historical texts from numerous languages and reintroduces valuable works long out of print. The volumes cover a broad geographical and temporal range, from ancient Chinese poetry to twentieth-century German treatises, and constitute a library of historical sources that have defined the core of the field. By making these works newly available, the series provides unprecedented access to the foundational literature of garden and landscape studies.

We welcome proposals, which may be sent to landscape@doaks.org.
