Professor Vaughn Sills' book named a favorite of 2010
MarthaStewart.com's Senior Associate Garden Editor named Places for the Spirit: Traditional African American Gardens by Professor Vaughn Sills her favorite book of 2010.
Every year, dozens of books cross our desks (a real perk of this job!) but my hands-down favorite of 2010 was Places for the Spirit: Traditional African American Gardens by photographer Vaughn Sills. For nearly 10 years, Sills traveled the South visiting gardeners and the spaces they created. The beautiful photographs she took during this period showcase the vision, creativity, and soul that her subjects have poured into their gardens.
She goes on to say that Places for the Spirit would make a perfect gift for "gardeners, artists, photography lovers, history buffs, book lovers, culture junkies, collectors, and the insatiably curious."
