Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1975
15 x 10.5cm, 2pp. The bilingual texts have different meanings: in French Flotte de Peche is fishing fleet whereas the English Peach Flute is a musical instrument as well Flyte being a Dutch cargo boat (sometimes a French version of the same ship). Finlay also often uses fruit (because of their shapes being like hulls) as metaphors for boats. This work later was recreated as a neon in which the two groups of words are designed to look like ships with masts and hulls making the meaning much more obvious. VG+.

Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1975.
10.5 x 15cm, 2pp. The one of a series of "National Flags" created by Finlay - here a rectangle with cross hatching in green and light yellow. Cytheria is a reference to several things - the mythical country, the painting "Journey to Cytheria" which Finlay has created prints and works about before and less known a bee which has green and yellow stripes. The colours nonetheless have the feel of those of an island landscape (vegetation and sand) and that is probably the more likely visual correspondence here. A flag for a desirable place to visit.
