Last summer I was lucky enough to be part of a wonderful exhibition with Illustrators Ireland members called “Judging by The Cover”.

Organized by incredible illustrator and superwoman Margaret Anne Suggs, the exhibition allowed people to take a closer look at the cover art of popular books, periodicals, and magazines in Ireland.

Art by Brian Fitzgerald, Nicola Colton, Sarah Bowie, Sheena Dempsey, Lauren O’Neill, Kathy Burke, Tatyana Feeney and Olwyn Whelan are just some of the fantastic artists featured.

The cover of our beloved, and now the award-winning book, Bliain na nAmhrán, has made into the exhibition that toured the whole country including Ballyfermot College of Further Education, Belltable Arts Centre in Limerick, Dublin City Libraries and many more!

If you have visited the exhibition, let me know what you thought of it!
If you didn’t, would you like it to make the rounds again? Which venue would you recommend?
