I'm a total sucker for the work of Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925-2006) and here are two new accordions that I found on his Wild Hawthorn web site. The work is economical, succinct, and rooted in a larger fascination with the cultural moment of the French revolution as well as world world war II. Symbols, signs, texts, visual and concrete are all intertwined in Hamilton's expanded artistic practice. You can get some of it here: Wild Hawthorn Press - Cards Index
