Thoughts on lettering Typographic ephemera

In honour of a decade: number 4

Ian Hamilton Finlay. I first wrote about this wordsmith/polymath in December 2010. You can read it here. To add to this, I now show two pieces that have been in my collection for decades. First:

evening will come
Evening will come…Ian Hamilton Finlay

This is printed on card [75mmx220mm] and somewhere I also have a lapel badge. The second item is perhaps much rarer – a screen printed poster [450mmx590mm], with the inscription: Ian Hamilton Finlay / Designer: Jim Nicholson / Wild Hawthorn Press 1967.

Digression on concrete poetry (reference A Hum[an Doc]ument)

With thanks to a recent commentator on this blog who refreshed my memory on the Sackner’s.

With reference to Tom Phillips and gratitude to Thames and Hudson, 1987: A Humument: A Treated Victorian Novel.  First Revised Edition, p.14.

STOP PRESS: 5th edition just published. This is a totally new treatment.
