45 pages, 90 x 120mm, edition of 250 produced for the exhibition 'DEFINITIONS' at the Victoria Miro Gallery, London, 4 May – 1 June 2011.
From ARROW to ZIMMERIT by way of GLADE, GROVE and GUILLOTINE, this is a typically quirky alphabet book (no p’s and q’s) from beyond the grave of the lover of classical word games, Ian Hamilton Finlay. The perfect gift for lovers of alphabet and miniature books. Its definition of GUILLOTINE, n. the highest peak of The Mountain; and its deepest ravine.
