October 1989

Jerusalem: The Israel Museum, 1989
27 x 21cm, 40pp plus card covers. Exhibition catalogue - part in English, part in Hebrew - with 16 b/w images of installations and works. Interview with the artist which importantly discusses his feelings being back in Jerusalem, the politics and his choice to regard himself as Jewish from the age of four. VG+ although there is a numbered sticker on the spine which does not detract.

Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1989
14 x 9.5cm, 4pp. Artist's folding card with the text "a line of thin pale red" inside which is a translation from Chenier - the French poet of revolutionary times who was guillotined. The red here being blood and the line that left momentarily from the clean cut of the blade. I do not know if Cutts and Finlay were friends at this point - as the card seems to hint at threat - but both published jointly a similar work together under the aegis of Cutts' Coracle Press a few years earlier. VG+.
