Publisher's description: Linn Botanic Gardens in western Scotland, an idiosyncratic utopia created by the shared passion of a reclusive father and son, is home to thousands of exotic plants from all over the world. Carefully constructed over 40 years by Jim and Jamie Taggart, the gardens surround Linn Villa, a decrepit, out-of-bounds Victorian house. Artist Alison Turnbull (born 1956) first encountered Linn several years ago while staying at an artists' retreat nearby. Since then, she and award-winning writer Philip Hoare (born 1958) have visited several times. Another Green World is their lyrical portrait of the site in text and pictures. Turnbull's photographs of the garden, villa and its owners, and her geometric drawings inspired by the garden, are complemented by photographer Ruth Clark's stunning double-page shots of the plants. Hoare's account of a visit weaves its way through these images, leading readers on a walk through the enigmatic garden and house.
