Product Description:
#2144 Landscape Design - Capability Brown (Run time 52 min.) DVD $89.95

In the first half of the 18th century, a young man emerged from a remote northern English village, took the landscape as his raw material, and created what the world has come to think of as the English countryside. Lancelot Brown-he became known to his noble patrons as "Capability" Brown-raised the craft of landscape gardening to an art, whose enduring quality is shown in this beautiful and informative documentary guide to Brown and his work.

#2150 Landscape Design - The Fountains of Rome (Run time 26 min.) DVD $89.95

Water and stone are the elements of Rome; joined in fountains, they create the essence that is the Eternal City. This program looks at the history, the architecture, and the artistry of Rome's fountains, following Giovanni Battista Faldi's 1691 guide and juxtaposing his marvelous drawings with the living reality. Among the fountains examined are the Fontana di Trevi, Santa Maria in Trastevere, the Rotonda on the Pantheon square, the Fountain of Aracoeli, the Dea Roma, and fountains by Bernini, Boromini, and many others. (26 minutes)

#35310 Landscape Design - Design: Applying the Elements (Run time 27 min.) DVD $89.95

The principles of design are visible almost anywhere, but too often they are explained in an abstract, intellectualized way. This hands-on video presents the basic elements of design and their importance in a wide variety of fields and professions-architecture, landscaping, fashion, furniture design, the culinary arts, information technology, and other disciplines. Studying balance, contrast, cropping, hierarchy, scale, proportion, pattern, and figure-ground relationships, the program demonstrates methods in which color, texture, form, line, shape, point, tone, and letterform are put to practical use. Interviews feature design experts who share their real-world experiences and strategies. A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online. (27 minutes)

#3339 Landscape Design - The European Garden (Run time 50 min.) DVD $149.95
