3 BLUE LEMONS*. 1968.

Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1968
17 x 12.5cm, 2pp. The card is the first of a few that join boat names together to tell a quasi-story or visual poem. Here Anchor of Hope/ Daisy/ Good Design indicates a daisy in the ground that is well rooted – hence a “good design”. In some ways a metaphysical comment on evolution’s creation. The card’s title has an asterix which leads to the note “in a tidal bowl, Peterhead” – a clarification that these are boats. Fine example. Murray has this as Card 4.8. Murray mis-identifies (not unusual) the date here – on the back it is clearly 1968 but his Catalogue Raisonne has it as 1967.
