12.1 x 8.3cm, 2pp card with a poem by Finlay after Eugen Gromringer's "Cars and Cars" although Finlay moves the context to that of fishermen and their boats. Finlay also notes Theocritus, Idylls XXI - The Fishermen - where two fishermen discuss a dream in which one sees a golden fish and after discussing the meaning of the dream, they come to the realisation that their wealth will come from their catches. Finlay repeats (after the original) in different combinations the images of creels, men, net-ropes, cobles - each creating a subtly different image ending with "men and men". VG+.
