Iris in her Garden by Barbara Hanrahan
Iris is the author’s grandmother, and in her garden, she is the centre of a feminine world. Her sister Reece, who grew up but remained a child, her daughter Ronda and her granddaughter Barbara people that world. At home or at school, on holidays by the sea or even growing up and leaving for art school in London, Barbara’s thoughts keep returning to Iris.
First published in 1991 as a hand-printed edition of 250 copies with monochrome etchings – this edition was published in 1992. There is some minor foxing and toning to the book but the text is clear with no loose pages.
