Recent News and Titles from Granary Books
Granary Books is pleased to offer for sale an extensive collection of publications by
Ian Hamilton Finlay, Upper Pool, Stonypath, 1998. Photograph by Robin Gillanders from Ian Hamilton Finlay: Selections, edited and introduced by Alec Finlay, University of California Press, 2012.
The collection includes approximately 340 items, which, taken together, provides a far-reaching overview of the publications of Ian Hamilton Finlay and the Wild Hawthorn Press. There are key examples of all styles, phases, and periods of Finlay’s printed work and as such, the collection offers a singular opportunity for research and exhibition with reference to a range of concerns, including artists’ books, concrete poetry, design, collaboration, gardens, little magazines, and small presses. There are many rarities among more than 100 books and booklets, 150 cards and folding cards, 15 poems/prints, 25 exhibition catalogs and related books, a near complete run of Poor. Old. Tired. Horse., and a unique fabric sculpture, a prototype for an abandoned edition from the early eighties. Additionally of note, there are seventeen signed limited editions and twenty-two items inscribed and/or addressed and mailed to Finlay’s longtime friend, the New York-based, British-born painter, Trevor Winkfield, several with substantial notes.
