Riverhill Himalayan Gardens: The Brand New Guide Book

I'm thrilled to be able to share with you some snippets from the final design for Riverhill Himalayan Gardens Guide Book!

After piles of hard work, research and development (not just from us but from Sarah and Ed Rogers at Riverhill, too), I'm really proud to reveal the final design. This year, the Rogers family were keen to build upon previous designs and create a Guide Book rich with content and images, sharing much more of the fascinating story of Riverhill with their visitors. We spend many hours poring over the incredible photo albums (most of which were dated around 1800) that Sarah bought in for us to work from - we were incredibly lucky to be given such fantastic material and content to work with. The result is a highly photographic book, full of insights into the Rogers family story and the tales behind many of the plants that visitors see in the gardens today. We've bought the Guide Book right up to date by including cues to visit Riverhill's Facebook page, with a QR code on the children's page. From photos and letters, to an introduction to the gardens by Riverhill's head gardener, Guy Chatten (and not forgetting a beautiful hand-drawn map of the gardens), the Guide Book is a comprehensive guide to the stunning gardens at Riverhill. I urge you to visit - the season's just started and the team have a year absolutely packed with events!

Below are just a handful of photos from the new Guide Book (I'd love to share more with you and could waffle on about this project for days) - I do hope you like them. A big thank you to Sarah Rogers for all her time in sourcing many of the gorgeous photos we've used in the design.
