It takes courage in a review to describe an intensely scholarly, elegantly written and fastidiously presented publication as "mind-blowing," but here Xin Wu offers an inspired resurrection of an almost forgotten garden project launched in the mind-blowing 1960s when boundaries to the imagination were unfashionable. Even the Dumbarton Oaks format of two thin volumes is innovative with jewel-like color illustrations upon glossy paper: coral sand dunes under snow, clouds that walk the earth over the body of sea spiders, some editions presented in a chaste box like the Beatles's White Album...Wu's sensitive presentation of Johanson's seven garden types enlarges the mind. -- Timothy Mowl "Garden History" (12/01/2008)

These garden designs are important as a highly personal exploration of the relevance of art to modern life and because of their relationship to the work of Johanson's contemporaries such as Robert Smithson. None of the garden designs were built, however, and as a result, these "paper designs" are as much works of art on paper as they are landscape studies. -- P. A. Mohr "Choice" (11/01/2008)
