27 Jun B OATS. 1998.
Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1998
10.5 x 15.1cm, 1pp artist's card printed blue and ochre on white. The text has a "b" then "oats" allowing it to be read both as oats and boats. Beneath is found "The Orcadian is a crofter with a boat while the Shetlander is a fisherman with a croft" apparently a traditional saying. Hence one can read the Oats/Boats as a direct representation of the saying. Finlay lived for some years in Orkney in a fisher community where he was employed as a shepherd. VG+.
