Ian Hamilton Finlay, A Rock Rose, with Richard Demarco, information sheet for The Wild Hawthorn Press, c. 1971

This is a simple information sheet publicizing Finlay's 'Wild Hawthorn Press' coupled with comments about the press from such worthies as Something Else Press and Art International.  But it's the image on the front (originally a print) that intrigues me, as once again Finlay's preoccupation with water, sea, and sailing comes to the fore, coupled with the 'rock' juxtaposed with the delicacy of the 'rose.' 

3 pages single-sided, each 4.74" x 7", and when fully opened 2' 7".
