Book: Re­mark­able Lives

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

This fas­ci­nat­ing se­lec­tion of sto­ries, Re­mark­able Lives — The Wild Ap­ple Press Com­pen­dium of Ir­ish Bi­og­ra­phy (Associated Edi­tions, 2017), was orig­i­nally printed in let­ter­press by Jim Wilder. Hav­ing dis­cov­ered the book at a Print Mu­seum ex­hi­bi­tion, I stayed up late read­ing ev­ery story be­cause they were so en­gag­ing. They in­cluded Early Chris­tian themes like Colum­cille and St Malachy of Ar­magh to the Cuala Press print­maker Elizabeth Cor­bet ‘Lolly’ Yeats and the 20th-cen­tury Dol­men Press book­maker Liam Miller.
