520    The Nordic countries are admired for their modern design 
       sophistication, but their contemporary gardens and 
       landscapes are less well known. Against a high-latitude 
       backdrop of deep winters, long summer days and raking 
       light, the Scandinavian countries - each in its distinct 
       manner - have produced particular responses to planting, 
       landschaping and the relationship between home and garden.
       Features the most inspiring examples in Sweden, Denmark, 
       Norway and Iceland, and brings new ideas for creating 
       modern outdoor spaces no matter where you live 
520 8  Few people have difficulty conjuring images of modern 
       Scandinavian design, whose influence over the past century
       has reached around the world. More difficult for many is 
       imagining the quiet landscapes of the Nordic countries, 
       which range from the flatlands of Denmark to the dramatic 
       mountains and fjords of Norway. These majestic 
       environments, combined with long summer days and light-
       poor winters, raking light and dense birch forests, have 
       given rise to exceptionally refined examples of garden and
       landscape design. This thematic survey presents the best 
       gardens to have been produced over the past ten years. 
       Organized by themes that encapsulate the special ambience 
       and lifestyle of the Scandinavian countries - Simplicity, 
       Silence, Fragility, Nakedness, Attunement, Boldness, 
       Openness and Care - each garden is presented through 
       images and texts explaining its unique aspects and 
       describing its particularly Scandinavian characteristics. 
       The timelessness of Nordic design has proven itself around
       the world for many decades. Now it is time for the quality
       of its gardens and landscapes to come into the light
