2014, hand-bound, mixed stock, limited edition artists book

This limited edition artist’s book is an edited compilation of drawings from 2008to 2012 was commissioned under the Dublin City Council Public Art programme funded by the Department of the Environment per cent for art.  It seeks to record something very special, the sense of community, particularly among older people, in the Crumlin area. The aim was to find the places that people gathered, where they’d be missed, if they weren’t there. Places, like bingo halls, community centres, bowling clubs, where people come together to do things they enjoy.
