in Artist's Books
Edinburgh: Graeme Murray Gallery, 1981
16 x 16cm, 60pp plus card covers and printed dustjacket. Three fold outs and one work reproduced in colour as frontispiece. Artist's book (one suspects it was also an exhibition catalogue given Murray was the dealer for the works included but this is not mentioned and Finlay is noted as having designed the book) which shows duotone images (by Hani Latif) of 17 inscribed large pebbles (or rocks really) with found texts from philosophers, poets and others. The texts on the stones reflect the quotations. The sculptures were made under Finlay's instruction by Richard Grasby. One thousand copies were printed. VG although slight rippling to the dustjacket.
