SAIL PLAN. 1995.


Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1995
13.6 x 10.4cm, 4pp. A drawing by Gary Hincks of a fishing boat with five sails – each is numbered in the “plan” and are all denoted as being made from a “hanky” – namely, Foresale, Topsail, Staysail and Mainsail hankies but the fifth is denoted as Sunday Hanky.
The “hankies” clearly mark out this boat as a toy model and the final sail is something of an oddity in sailing in that it is not that an important element in the rigging. As such – like a Sunday Hanky – only shown during important events, it is an adornment rather than functional. VG+.
