Make sure you turn off the immersion

We are very excited to show you our recent delivery of Rachel Corcoran cards and prints. Corcoran is a Dublin-based illustrator whose "images evoke a sense of wonder and whimsy". Pictured are details from her Home Sweet Home print that illustrates some of the intrinsic aspects of Irish life; death notices, the immersion (firmly switched off thank god) and the main man himself, Bosco. This print is thoughtful, funny and pretty hard to resist.

We're totally enamoured with Corcoran's range of cards too. As well as being handmade in Ireland, printed on fsc-certified paper and plastic-free due to their corn starch sleeves (!), they are objectively perfect. Something thoughtful, local and eco-friendly to send to a friend.

And if all of that didn't make you smile (unlikely), these coin purses have just landed in the shop...

Book of the Week #12

 

 

 

 

This week's book of the week is The Long Gaze Back. Edited by Sinead Gleeson, this collection of short stories by Irish female writers was chosen as this year's Dublin: One City, One Book; an award-winning initiative that "encourages everyone to read a book connected to the capital city during the month of April each year".  As you can see we're a little late to the party here so if you are too join us in binge-reading this fantastic collection of stories.

Each week you'll find a new book of the week beside the till, alongside the previous week's title, both of which will be on sale with 10% off for their fortnight in the spotlight. 

 

 

Last week's title was The Cow Book by John Connell.

 

 

 

Have a great week and enjoy that sunshine!
