Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1987
16.7 x 13.1cm, 1pp artist’s card with a parody of an advertisement for the publication edited by Catherine Millet. The faux advert includes a list of song titles from the war such as “We’re gonna hang out the washing on the Siegfried Line” and “The White Cliffs of Dover” – and “other World War II Nazi marching songs”.
Millet had attacked Finlay because she had seen a jokey reference on a house washing line at Little Sparta which was labelled “Siegfried Line” and claimed this as proof of Nazi sympathies.
This, of course, to any British person is absurd as the songs were jokey attacks on Hitler sung by troops and civilians during the war – Millet seems not to have known that and as a result made a completely ignorant point. One of the more witty attacks on Millet by Finlay. VG+.
