Brand New Book on Irish Design 1922-92 – Out Now

My friend, Linda King, along with Elaine Sisson must be feeling very proud today after the launch last night, by Ruairi Quinn T.D., of their new book on Irish Design called “Ireland, Design and Visual Culture: Negotiating Modernity, 1922 – 1992”. (where is tinyurl when you need it, eh!)
The book looks & feels fabulous and contains some great photos from the archives. It explores the shaping of Irish modernity via architecture, advertising, currency, illustration, industrial design, public spectacle and theatre design. Nothing about fanzines or music, I’m afraid!  Read more on the book’s publishers site. I took a scan of the cover and some of the featured images, see below.
