February 1972

Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1972
6.7 x 18.5cm, 4pp. Two photographs by Finlay of one of his home-made toys - here a frigate. On closer inspection one suddenly realises that the photograph is the same one only flipped so that the reflection from the water creates a visual illusion of solidity when it is dominant. Under one image the word "Fregatte" is set and under the other "Frigate" hence on the left the German and on the right the English words for the battleship. Hence by a simple rotation Finlay's photograph displays both sides of the conflict.
This card is signed on the back cover "Love from Ian" in blue ink. VG+.

Berlin: AQ Verlag, n.d (1972)
20 x 20.7cm, unpaginated (c. 112pp) plus pictorial wrappers. A single number of this photographic and art journal - here Boltanski has two original contributions - 10 SCENES DE LA VIE ENFANTINE DE CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI INTERPRETEE LE 12 JUIN 1971 PAR FRANCOISE GUINIOU ET LET PETITS JEAN ET MARTINE and ESSAI DE RECONSTITUTION DES 46 JOURS QUE PRECEDERENT LA MORT DE FRANCOISE GUINIOU (EXTRAITS). Neither to our knowledge is reproduced elsewhere. The former being six b/w images of children acting out scenes from Boltanski's supposed memories. The second the same photographs and more displayed as contact prints from a film role. One is expected (one presumes) to see the latter as the documentation of the previous project and that Francoise Guiniou somehow died soon after the photoshoot.
There are other original pageworks by Paul-Armand Gette, Jean Le Gac, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Jochen Gerz and Anthony McCall.
Not in any catalogue raisonne.

Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1972
10.5 x 15.2cm, 1pp. A photograph by Finlay of his son Eck (later Alex) Finlay as a young child in a small boat on the lake (named after Eck) on the Finlay farm. It is a charming picture. Edward Atkinson Hornel was a Scottish painter who specialised in paintings of landscapes and nature within which children were often seen playing - a successful strategy for sales.
