Scotland: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1965. Letterpress broadside in 2 colors. 17.5 x 22.75 inches. (Murray 1.10) John Furnival's prints and drawings connect his antecedents in the Dada and Surrealist movements to his affinities and associations in the early 1960s with the innovators of Concrete poetry, the Beat poets, and the Fluxus and Mail Art movements. Furnival somehow has avoided falling into any one of these . Ian Hamilton Finlay (28 October 1925 - 27 March 2006) was a Scottish poet, writer, artist, and gardener. He briefly attended Glasgow School of Art and first made his reputation as a writer, publishing short stories and plays in the 1950s. In 1961 he founded the Wild Hawthorn Press with Jessie McGuffie and within a few years had established himself internationally as Britain's foremost concrete poet.
