'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.' --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
'Ian Hamilton Finlay is one of the most diversely and richly talented visual artists living today . . . This handsomely produced book describes and illustrates [his] whole artistic career, of which his remarkable garden must be seen as the finest flower.' --The World of Interiors
'Yvres Abrioux's analysis of a whole range of issues raised by Finlay's work is clear and penetrating.'
About the Author

I returned the softcover version and bought a used hardcover version elsewhere and it's a fine book. They shouldn't be sold on the same page since the description is totally off.
