N.p. (Glasgow): s.p. (Robertson), 2017
10.5 x 15cm, 2pp offset postcard which has a piece of masking tape along with a handwritten text taken from one of 9 different poems chosen by the artist including the Rubiyat of Omar Khayyam, Romance by Rimbaud, 2 Flies by Bukowski and others.
The text here is “I would rather be good than clever” and is taken from “Who Did Which?
or, Who Indeed?” by Ogden Nash that ends:
Gently my eyelids close;
I’d rather be good than clever;
And I’d rather have my facts all wrong
Than have no facts whatever.
Each card is unique. VG+.
A short handwritten signed note from the artist to Paul Roberston explaining the work.
