Ian Hamilton Finlay, Textbooklet 2 (1979) and 2 Notices (nd), Wild Hawthorn Press, Scotland


I have to confess I have a total soft spot for these delicate little accordions that Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925-2006) produced over the course of his life through his Wild Hawthorn Press in Scotland. There are a number of his other accordions scattered throughout this blog. 


This accordion documents two signs, one of which was installed as part of Ian Hamilton Finlay's wonderful garden, Little Sparta, and the other is a proposed sign for a specific location in the garden. For more information about the garden see: Little Sparta Trust

4 pages, single-sided, 2" (h) x 2" (w), when opened up 8".




 Another visual poetry oriented work that I'm unable to decipher!

8 pages, single-sided, 4" (h) x 2" (w), when opened 16".
