    Book Description
    From Booklist
    Steeped in lore, herbs are among the oldest of all plants, with applications dating back thousands of years. Books extolling their virtues and promoting their properties have long been staples of the gardening library, so for one to proclaim itself so boldly as "new" it must be truly unique, and McVicar's is. A paragon of design and construction, it is so clearly organized, so carefully arranged, it should serve as the model for all such encyclopedic treatises. Stylish photographs and elegant layouts elevate this exemplary guide book to art-book status. Yet make no mistake: the practical information so handsomely conveyed is comprehensive in scope and commonsensical in approach. Beginning with a thorough explanation of gardening concerns such as care, maintenance, propagation, and harvesting, McVicar offers inventive and accessible ways of incorporating herbs in culinary and nonculinary projects. But it is her catalog of top 100 favorite herbs that forms the heart of the book, in which enticing photographs highlight essential information, making this a must-have for every herb and gardening collection.
