Artists’ Books and Posters from the National Irish Visual Arts Library, NCAD
13 June – 26 August 2012
The Artists’ Books Collection and the Irish Posters Collection are some of NIVAL’s most fascinating and diverse groupings of art work and documentation. For the purpose of the exhibition, members of Curatorial Committee of the National Print Museum were invited to hand select artists’ books and posters from the NIVAL collection. The Committee Members were naturally drawn to items with interesting print and design qualities such as a Jan de Fouw’s poster Fly Aer Lingus, Britain, (c. 1960) and Mary Plunkett’s award winning limited edition book Night Prayer: a contemporary Book of Hours by letterpress and print (2011).
