Ian Hamilton Finlay: A Visual Primer

Ian Hamilton Finlay - poet, gardener and moralist - is also recognised as an artist of international stature whose works are in important collections in Britain, Europe and America. His approach, which bypasses the traditional genre distinctions between painting, sculpture and architecture, is remarkably original, and he is also known as the developer of one of Britain's most celebrated modern gardens. Extensively illustrated, this revised and expanded edition, now available in paperback, includes a generous selection from Finlay's published and environmental work and a biographical sketch of the artist.
