Nottingham: Stuart Mills, 2003
15 x 10.5cm, 2pp postcard with a colour photograph of titular "Sea Eck" boat on the Temple Pond at Little Sparta taken by Stuart Mills in 1967.
The card has a neat handwritten note in pen from Stuart Mills: "Behind the boat with the remains of an old packing case leaning against, the byre, to become temple.

Nottingham: Stuart Mills, 2003
15 x 10.5cm, 2pp postcard with a colour photograph of the Temple Pond at Little Sparta taken by Stuart Mills. We do not know the date of publication of this card but believe it before Finlay's death. VG+....

Two colour photographs (both 21 x 29.7cm)) and two 35mm colour slides. Signed certificate with instructions for display: "The two images should not be displayed within the same space. The work can be made in a number of different ways, either both photographs can be show, both slides projected (the projected dimensions are variable) or one photograph and one projection.
The owner of the work must decide how the piece is to be installed. For every installation a different rule can be followed.
Duplicate slides should not be made. Fading only alters the look of the piece, but not it's intention."
The work shows two similar but slightly different images of a lorry being refuelled in a Mexican petrol station. In the background are stripes on a wall which look somewhat like a Daniel Buren stripes work (hence the title "Photo Souvenir - which is a title Buren uses for his photo=documentations of works).
An unique work by Monk only ever exhibited in the "Secret Exhibition" show in Edinburgh in 2013 curated by Paul Robertson. VG+.
