The way Scots writer Hugh Macdiarmid (1892-1978) did his hair made his head look as if it were on fire, which in a sense it was. His daughter-in-law Deirdrie Grieve commented, "I think he entertained almost every ideal it was possible to entertain at one point or another." His most famous work is "A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle" first published in 1926. It comprises a series of meandering poems written in his own variation of Scots. I took the title for this print from the same book:
"Or am I juist a figure in a scene
O' Scottish Life A.D. One-nine-two-five?"

This print is pulled from engraved rubber, my own variation of relief printing.
