Gas from a Burner

Designed and printed in September 2012 to celebrate the centenary of James Joyce’s original publishing in September 1912.

The book has been designed, illustrated and letterpress printed by Jamie Murphy and Mary Plunkett at Distillers Press, NCAD, Dublin. The illustrations that accompany the text in the book have been printed from the original linoleum blocks. The cover image of the guillotine is based on an illustration found within Stephenson Blake’s type specimen book ‘Point Line Type’, published in 1921. Printed in 18 and 14 point Eason, designed by Randy Jones. Although some have been corrected, several quirks in the punctuation remain from the original broadside. The edition has been bound in cloth and board by Tom Duffy at his studio at Dublin’s Five Lamps.

Edition of 100 copies.
