Really excited for the upcoming launch event for a book I illustrated, ‘Hello Hinterland’. The event will take place at Hodges Figgis Waterstones on Dawson Street, Dublin 2 on 28th April 2022 from 6-8pm.
Hello Hinterland is a collection of illustrated stories and poetry celebrating the culture and heritage of Fingal county on the east coast of Ireland, written by Martin Holohan. It’s colourful illustrations make it appealing to children, but it is a book for adults also, we want it to be enjoyed by everyone.
It was a pleasure to work on our first book together, from start to finish to this launch event. Martin is a charismatic person and writer. He gave me the freedom to work on the illustrations without direction, inspired by his writing. I then put the book design layout together using my graphic design skills, and we worked to get a quality hard-back print. Hopefully everyone will enjoy reading the book as much as we enjoyed creating it.
It is available to be purchased at Hodges Figgis (Waterstones) bookstore on Dawson Street (Dublin 2) and on their online store, Tales 4 Tadpoles bookstore on Drury Street (Dublin 2) and will be rolling out to a range of other bookstores in Dublin and Ireland in the coming months. It can also be ordered online from the book publisher Choice Publishing.
