Format: Paperback
If you're unable to visit this garden in person (preferably out of the busy season) then this book gives a wonderful pictorial flavour of this magical place. I was a latent admirer of Barbara Hepworth; after visiting her own special place - a very atmospheric space comprising a pretty, small garden which is filled with her work; I was able to visualise her working long and hard in her small workshop next to the church in St Ives. This book conveys the atmosphere in Barbara's studio and garden beautifully.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Max Planck on 5 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
Barbara Hepworth's home/studio/sculpture garden is wonderful, and should be an essential part of anyone's visit to St Ives.
As a memento, this book is adequate but not terribly inspiring. The composition of the photos, the layout of the pages, the quality of the print are certainly not poor - just nothing very special. There's a dated, humdrum feel to the book that makes it seem older than its 2002 publication date, and it evinces little of the garden's huge appeal. Tate Publishing need to find a talented photographer to shoot fresh images of the sculptures in their unique setting, and a designer who can make the book a striking, visual treat - even it it means hiking the cover price up to over the £10 mark. Then, it might come close to doing some justice to this amazing place.

I wanted to remind myself about this garden as I hadn't seen it for years. When I originally saw it few years ago it left a wonderful impression . I was not disappointed-all the lovely memories came back --so I plan to re-visit soon.
