A SAILOR’S CALENDAR. A MISCELLANY. 1971

£140.00

NYC/Koln: Something Else Press, 1971,
157.5 x 12,5cm, 18pp (recto only) plus cover. An artist’s book with silkscreens on thick card with interleaving pages and paper back cover (which is often missing because of its fragility). Three ring bindings. A series of visual and concrete poems by Finlay illustrated by Gordon Huntly. For example: 4 Sailing Drifters anre listed as Nobby, Nickey, Lily and Cloud – which Finlay finds an attractive grouping possibly just because of the vocalised rhythm. There is no real theme to the selection of works – this is indeed a “miscellany”. One of 1,000 issued – this is in VG condition although the metal rings as always show flecks of rust, there is the odd small stain (again rust) and the blank back sheet .is present but with one punched hole a bit torn (this format of book is always going to show tears and damage – a poor design fault).
