Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1986
5.5 x 8.6cm, printed outer folder content of sixteen 5.5 x 8.6cm, 1pp cards printed black on deep blue. Each card is attack of the hack art critic Waldemar Januszczak who had upset the poet by giving him a poor review (Finlay also fell out with the priggish and ignorant Brian Sewell for which I love the poet even more). The cards all attack with vigour the Guardian’ pet critic – “Being outspoken was his claim to shame” is one example. Finlay wounds. Januszczak later tried to retaliate with his own cards (see elsewhere in this collection for those items) but all they did was to parody Finlay’s style of attack and frankly failed to hit the target (one has an image of a man giving a Hitler salute – actually taken from early Anselm Kiefer – which is crass). These cards are in VG+ condition in like folder.
