A visual classic
on 30 July 2006
I found this book in the wrong section of a bookshop in Borders Bluewater whilst looking for a italian cookbook. If I hadn't seen it in with the receipe books I am quite sure I would have never picked it up and then I would not have known what I was missing.
I am into photography, and whilst I knew of Derek Jarman's garden through articles in magazines none of those articles or photos come anywhere near to bringing out the beauty of the place as the contenets of this book does. Its well palled and beautiful.
The photography is first class and this not only compliments Derek Jarmans diary pieces , it brings the book alive.
I did enjoy the prose also and you get a real feel for Derek Jarmans way of life up to his untimely death.
A nice book and highly recommended.
