IR­ISH DE­SIGN Who doesn’t love a beau­ti­ful ob­ject? And with the big C around the cor­ner, those of you look­ing to gift things of an artis­tic na­ture can praise the art gods for de­liv­er­ing in­spi­ra­tion di­rectly into your sweaty palms.

This week­end, as part of the View arts and pol­i­tics week­end, the Tem­ple Bar Gallery and Stu­dios is hold­ing the fifth edi­tion of the Dublin Art Book Fair. In stock will be more than 50 books on art, de­sign, and pho­tog­ra­phy from Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional pub­lish­ers, along with spe­cial edi­tions and books on sculp­ture, paint­ing, cu­ra­tion and phi­los­o­phy. Among the pub­lish­ers pitch­ing up are Black Dog Pub­lish­ing, Bomb, Frieze, Mack and many more.

There will also be a se­lec­tion of artists’ books and one-off creations, with Ir­ish cre­ators Lee Welch, Lucy McKenna and Susan MacWil­liam among those con­tribut­ing to the fair. Artist Mi­randa Blen­ner­has­sett has cre­ated a new wall paint­ing in the gallery and the Mar­ket Kitchen will have a café on site. Mind you, if you spill on it, you pay for it.

Apart from the fair, there will be a sym­po­sium on the dark arts of pho­tog­ra­phy and pol­i­tics, fea­tur­ing Ea­monn Far­rell, Eileen Martin and Ger­ard Howlin, and a dis­cus­sion on the fu­ture of Tem­ple Bar, with Bren­dan Kenny from Dublin City Coun­cil, Martin Harte, the CEO of Tem­ple Bar Com­pany, Cllr Re­becca Moyni­han and the Gallery of Pho­tog­ra­phy’s Trish Lambe.

If that isn’t enough beau­ti­ful de­sign for you, Lim­i­nal has just touched down at the De­sign Hub in Dublin Cas­tle. The ex­hi­bi­tion (above) has been show­cas­ing the work of 20 Ir­ish de­sign­ers across a range of dis­ci­plines in Eind­hoven, Milan and New York, as part of Ir­ish De­sign 2015. Check out irishde­sign2015.ie for a se­lec­tion of work­shops and events tak­ing place around the ex­hi­bi­tion.
