Abstract

A highly collectable, limited edition artists’ book, A Walled Garden reproduces for the first time the complete set of watercolours that Ian Gardner made in collaboration with Ian Hamilton Finlay for the unpublished book, A Walled Garden: A History of the Spandau Garden in the Time of the Architect Albert Speer.

Finlay conceived the project after corresponding with the former Third Reich architect in the late 1970s, shortly after the publication of Clara and Richard Winston’s English translation of, Spandau: The Secret Diaries (1976), Speer’s clandestine record of his twenty-year imprisonment in west Berlin’s Spandau prison from 1946 to 1966.
