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.
