Contamination 1916-2016


This project was awarded membership into the International Society of Typographic Designers and was a response to the ‘Milestones’ brief. The book looks at the changing rhetoric of Nationalism in Ireland by exploring the ephemera and speeches over the last 100 years. It focuses on three pivotal milestones of Nationalism in Ireland: The Easter Rising, The Battle of the Bogside and The Good Friday Agreement. It acts as a commemorative book for the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising but also explores how the meaning of Nationalism has changed during this time.
