Another Green World: Linn Botanic Gardens

Encounters with a Scottish Arcadia

Edited and introduction by Alison Turnbull. Text by Philip Hoare, Ian Edwards. Photographs by Alison Turnbull, Ruth Clark. Contributions by Jamie Taggart.

Another Green World: Linn Botanic Gardens

A lyrical portrait of an idiosyncratic, verdant haven

Linn Botanic Gardens is a place like no other: a magical, idiosyncratic, verdant haven created by the shared passion of a father and son. Situated beside a Scottish loch, Linn is a horticultural treasure trove that is home to thousands of exotic plants from all over the world, making it one of the most biodiverse places in Scotland. Constructed over 40 years by Jim and Jamie Taggart, the garden is shaped by the subtle interplay of science and art, botany and design, mathematics and color. At its heart, like a mysterious presence that looms over the surrounding land while being slowly consumed by the ceaseless spread of nature, stands Linn Villa, the out-of-bounds Victorian house that appears to have lain untouched for decades.

Another Green World is artist Alison Turnbull and writer Philip Hoare's lyrical portrait of this enchanting place. Conceived and compiled by Turnbull, this exquisite artist's book captures not only the beauty but also the spirit of Linn. Hoare's evocative text and Turnbull's delicate photographs, drawings and charts, complemented by photographer Ruth Clark's stunning double-page images, lead us through the garden and the Victorian house in its midst as if we were actually there. Completing this unique and beautiful volume are ecologist Ian Edwards' appreciation of Linn as an important reserve of rare rhododendrons and Jamie Taggart's list of every species in the garden.

Alison Turnbull is an artist based in London. Her solo shows include exhibitions at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea (2013) and Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh (2012). She had a visual arts residency at Cove Park in 2011. The previous year she was Artist-in-Residence in the Department of Entomology at the Natural History Museum, London; in 2009, she took part in the Gulbenkian Galápagos Artists Program; and in 2005, she had a residency at the University of Oxford Botanic Garden. She is represented by Matt's Gallery, London.

Philip Hoare is an award-winning writer and broadcaster. He won the BBC Samuel Johnson Prize in 2009 for Leviathan or, The Whale (2008). He is also the author of The Sea Inside (2013), England's Lost Eden: Adventures in a Victorian Utopia (2005), Spike Island: The Memory of a Military Hospital (2000), Wilde's Last Stand: Decadence, Conspiracy, and the First World War (1997), Noel Coward: A Biography (1995) and Serious Pleasures: The Life of Stephen Tennant (1990). He is professor of creative writing at the University of Southampton, and is also the Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence at the Marine Institute, Plymouth University, which awarded him an honorary doctorate in 2011.
