Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, n.d. (1996)
13 x 9.5cm, 4pp artist’s card with a reproduced watercolour drawing of a blue sailship by Gary Hincks and a long “quotation” supposedly from Heinrich von Osterdingen which Finlay dubs “An Alternative Opening” where a young man thinks about a tale of a blue sailboat and how much he would love to see such a thing. In a 1802 book about Heinrich von Osterdingen by Novalis the young man dreams about a blue flower (rather than a boat). The blue flower became a regular reference in symbolism for romance – here Finlay alters the symbolism to that of the sea and long voyagesVG+.
