Shellhorn CoverLALH and the University of Georgia Press are pleased to announce the publication of Kelly Comras’s Ruth Shellhorn, the first volume in the Masters of Modern Landscape Design series.

“Kelly Comras’s book on Ruth Shellhorn will, at long last, put her in proper perspective as an important pioneer in landscape design and plan­ning in California. The book is engaging, with clear, direct writing, based on impeccable research and documentation.” —Darrel Morrison, FASLA, Professor Emeritus, University of Georgia

In a career spanning nearly sixty years, Ruth Shellhorn (1909–2006) helped shape Southern California’s iconic modernist aesthetic. This is the first full-length treatment of Shellhorn, who created close to four hundred landscape designs, collaborated with some of the region’s most cel­ebrated architects, and left her mark on places ranging from college campuses to Disneyland’s Main Street.
