The periodical Poor. Old. Tired. Horse. was founded by Ian Hamilton FInlay in 1962.
Borrowing its name from a Robert Creeley poem and published through Finlay's imprint the Wild Hawthorn Press, Poor. Old. Tired. Horse. (or POTH as it is often referred to) aimed to introduce the United Kingdom to poetry from all over the world and to explore the visual presentation of poetry through the use of drawings, woodcuts, calligraphy and typographic design.
Twenty-five issues of the journal were published over a period of six years. The publications include contributions from Bridget Riley, Ad Reinhardt, Edwin Morgan, George Mackay Brown, Eugen Gomringer, Albert Birot and Augusto de Campos and many others.
