Re: [APD] Recommendation on college landscaping books
Residential Landscape Architecture 2nd ed. Norman K Booth and James E Hiss
ISBN 0-13-632019. Pages 194-214 discuss principles of design, and this is
mainly all you would need to read. Get the book from the library, textbooks
are expensive. Design principles are universal and would apply to art,
crafts, and floral design as well. This book only deals with three design
principles; Order, Unity, Rhythm. A floral design text would deal all of
the principles of design.
