In The Ould Ago
Johnny and Teresa McKeagney
Design A3 420mm x 297mm case-bound 200pp book
Beautifully Illustrated by Johnny McKeagney, this is an Irish Folklore book recalling how things were “In The Ould Ago.”
It comprises of 200 intricately hand-drawn illustrated pages of Irish traditions, crafts, history, countryside, farming ways, wildlife, myths and customs all sewn together in a case-bound hardback A3 size book.
I worked with Johnny and Teresa McKeagney on the design of their publication, firstly scanning all the images in three parts and then reassembling them as complete A3 images. Initially there were 300 images (900 scans) and from this 200 images were chosen for the book.
