"...this book immerses the reader in images of landscapes, events, notes and conversations that describe Finlay's 'microtonal' approach ... The images illustrate a selection of works that are described in the commentaries. Some versions of landscape (SVOL) is the title for a collection of landscape projects including those made for YSP. These represent the breadth of Finlay's approach to landscape and nature and his treatment of such themes as play, wounded nature, philosophical topography and genetic modification. The extracts from his Notebooks (part 3) are a poetic and sometimes humorous collection of sketches, drawings and proposals for landscapes, sculptures and events ... Finally, in part 4, we have included a correspondence between Finlay and Gavin Morrison ..."--Introduction by Alex Hodby, p. 6.
