"Janet Boulton's watercolour drawings have been reproduced on Canaletto Liscia, and the book printed and bound by Colin Sackett in an edition of two hundred and twenty copies; Axminster 2009."--Colophon.
"Finlay's toys are probably the least known of his works, yet they exemplify crucial qualities inherent in his life's work--the stripping away of detail or exposition; the distillation of ideas which nevertheless holds scope for the imagination. These apparently simple toys offer another avenue to the heart of a consumate and prolific artist's preoccupations and methods."--P. 18-19, from the commentary by Jessie Sheeler,
