Poême-Pancarte / Paradis

Scotland: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1964. Broadside measuring 57.2 x 44.2 cm (22.5 x 17.4") printed in blue and green ink on cream paper. Text in French.

An elegant work of concrete poetry declaring paradise is within reach in either direction. The phrase along the bottom roughly translates to ‘Follow until the end / Then you will ask the Angels’. A poignant and poetic piece by the avant-garde poet, dramatist, and theater manager.

One in a series of broadsides published by the prolific Scottish concrete poet Ian Hamilton-Finlay at Wild Hawthorn Press.

Very good with light age toning, handling creases, and a few dark stains along left margin. Item #433

Price: $500.00
