The Ivington Diaries

The Ivington Diaries is a personal collection of Monty Don’s jottings over the course of  fifteen years, from when he and his wife Sarah moved into their semi-derelict farmhouse at Ivington in 1991, subsequently restoring it and creating its world-famous garden. The book reflects Monty’s deeply personal journey in his own words and photography, charting the challenges of creating and working in his garden. Our restrained typographic design and sympathetic layouts resulted in ‘one of the most delightful garden books ever published’.
