Holiday Recommendations Guest Post #4: Peter Foolen

Alec Finlay
Edition for The Flag Club
Eindhoven, The Netherlands: Peter Foolen Editions, 2013
34 x 26 x5 cm
Edition of 25 signed and numbered copies
€ 350

I started 'The Flag Club' in 2011, and I invite every year an artist to design a flag and edition for a flag pole near a cottage at the most northern point of Holland. Thomas A Clark was the first one in 2011, and in 2012 it was Peter Liversidge. This year it was Alec Finlay. The edition is titled 'Flag / Skying' and it conains the flag 'Soapsuds & Whitewash', a 'membershipcard', an embroidred tea towel and a suite of 12 prints: 'Skying'.
