Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1996
10.6 x 8cm, 20pp plus card covers. Artist's book dedicated to Colin Sackett which can be read in both directions - in one direction every right hand page has the word "runnel" and if turned around and read in the opposite direction the the word repeated is "funnel". Hence in one direct the words run off the page like a stream (a runnel) but in the other move away like the expelled steam from a funnel. Interestingly the name "sackett" is regarded as having the meaning of an opponent - someone who goes opposite to you. VG apart from the staples are a bit rusted.
