A Garden's Echo, like her memoir Berkeley to the Barnyard, is an illustrated adult storybook.
It tells of a personal journey and discovery of fascinating family history. A Garden's Echo is also a reflection on the mysteries of nature. Its message is of critical importance in today's world of serious environmental troubles.
The book is richly illustrated, filling the pages and the senses with beauty. The paintings are many layered, multitextured and finely detailed - like nature itself.
With lustrous collages and intimate prose, acclaimed printmaker Helen Stewart has composed A Garden’s Echo, a gorgeous book made to cherish.
Through her warm voice and intimate images the artist tells a story of a nearly forgotten past, of her china-painting great-grandmother, of two men, twin bankers, the sons of an important nurseryman, of George Eastman’s flower photography, and of herself struggling on her farm…
Through it all flash the genetic links of generations of flower lovers, and a family inheritance that ranges across North America. This book is Helen Stewart’s exquisite, earthy garden on paper.
