Autumn

 

Autumn officially starts September 22. In celebration of the fall season, we have put together a display of beautiful books and seasonal poetry!
 
The following books feature beautiful fall imagery: Autumn in Piemonte: food and travels in Italy's Northwest by Manuela Darling-Gansser,  New England Icons and Inspirations by Tommy Hilfiger, Fallingwater, a Frank Lloyd Wright Country House by Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., Irish Country by Nicholas Mosse, The Private World of Tasha Tudor with photography by Richard Brown, Flavor of New England with food photography by Neil Sutherland and Peter Barry, A Passion for Flowers by Carolyne Roehm, Living with the Seasons by Bonnie Trust Dahan, The Sense of Wonder by Rachel Carson, At Home with Carolyne Roehm, and America Wide panographs by Ken Duncan.
 
William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878) has called autumn the "year's last loveliest smile." The lithograph on the left titled "Autumn" is by Currier & Ives from 1871.
