Ulysses Strands

13 June -26 August 2012


Ulysses Strands is a series of letterpress posters designed and printed by Jamie Murphy and Mary Plunkett at Distillers Press, National College of Art and Design, based on tweet-length excerpts from Ulysses, chosen by Steve Cole. Cole is a volunteer at the Baltimore Museum of Industry’s print shop (Maryland, USA) and creator of LiberateUlysses. Together, their vision was to create a typographical exploration of the richness and complexity of Joyce’s work through variations in type, composition and colour. The exhibition of the handset wood type posters marked the first Bloomsday since the copyright on James Joyce’s works expired earlier this year. Each poster is in a limited edition of 20.

Artists’ Books and Posters

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).
