9780948462405: Ian Hamilton Finlay: A Visual Primer

Superbly illustrated in both color and black and white, the revised and expanded edition of this celebrated book brings Finlay's career up to date.

"Ian Hamilton Finlay is one of the most diversely and richly talented visual artists living today ... This very handsomely produced book describes and illustrates [his] whole artistic career"—The World of Interiors

"This well-selected and finely printed presentation – much of it in colour – of poems, short stories, and photographs of non-printed materials is by far the fullest, most attractive and most persuasive account given to date of Finlay's many-faceted achievement"—The Times Literary Supplement

"It is good to see as intelligent a book as this being combined with a format which does its subject the honour due to him, but above all, this is a book which sets out to help the reader to understand an artist who requires thoughtful, unbiased contemplation"—Books in Scotland
