Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1971

14.6 x 9.5cm, 2pp. Blue and red on white – the front of the card has the text “William & Rose, with a pair of reefs down” above the blue rectangle bordered in red. Donald McGill was a baudy illustrator who made his fame from creating saucy sea-side postcards, the text on the front hints at that slight sexuality with the “pair of reefs down” hinting at the removal of clothing by William and his Rose- whereas in sailing, reefing is the means of reducing the area of a sail, usually by folding or rolling one edge of the canvas in on itself. A humorous allusion. VG+.
