Mackintosh Library Collections: Ian Hamilton Finlay


Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925-2006) was a hugely influential Scottish artist, concrete poet, playwright, provocateur, gardener and landscapist. Artist’s books always formed an integral part of his artistic production, and he produced postcards, prints, bookmarks, ephemera, booklets and catalogues throughout his career, often under his own imprint The Wild Hawthorn Press. We hold a comprehensive collection of Finlay’s works from across his oeuvre from the 1960s until his death in 2006.
