Inspired by the news a poll had voted a garden as the most important work of art in Scotland, photographer Allan Pollok-Morris began a five-year Scottish odyssey in search of new works in landscape design and land art and to learn more from the creators of the works including Andy Goldsworthy, Charles Jencks, Alec Finlay, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Anish Kapoor, and Peter Liversidge, many of whom have written texts for the book. Inside this beautifully designed book are some of the finest works in garden making and land art, alongside many new discoveries. There are over 250 color photographs by Allan Pollok-Morris, a foreword by Sir Roy Strong, an essay by Tim Richardson, and illustration by Gary Hincks. A high-quality finish, 300-page, FSC certified hardback book, this second edition is supported by a large photographic exhibition and film, Close: A Journey in Scotland.
