Tallum: Gunnar Asplund's & Sigurd Lewerentz's Woodland Cemetery in Stockholm

by Bengt O H Johansson with photographs by Fabio Galli. Byggforlaget, 1996. 116pp. £50 approx. (Available from Triangle bookshop 0171 631 1381)

The Woodland Cemetery at the edge of Stockholm is one of this century's most profound integrations of architecture and landscape. Bengt Johannson's text is informed, although it doesn't supersede Caroline Constant's study (The Woodland Cemetery: Toward A Spiritual Landscape. Byggforlaget, 1994). What distinguishes Tallum - and something needs to, given its price - are the exceptional colour photographs by Fabio Galli. Taken in all seasons, and thoughtfully sequenced, they give a comprehensive picture of this affecting place.
