Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, n.d. (c. 2005)
21 x 15cm, 1pp plus blue card covers which are metal spiral bound.
The text on the single page (printed on white card) reads:

SPIRAL BINDING
(PAGE TO COVER)

SPIRAL BINDING
(MAST TO SAIL)

Finlay is comparing the physical form of the book to the way a sail is bound to a mast.
This was not Finlay's first comparison of spiral binding to a sailboat - the work SPIRAL BINDING from 1972 consisted of shaped cards bound together to resemble a ship's sail printed with the boat's number. To our mind this is a cruder version of that work .
A note on date - we cannot find any reference to allow us to date this item accurately - we believe it to be one of Finlay's last artist's books and have dated it as 2005 but may be wrong.
