Dear friends


We are delighted to inform you that Eye 97 is on press and will start arriving at subscribers’ mail rooms and letterboxes at the beginning of next week. Copies will reach all good design bookshops a little later.

On the blog—Newsletter

Works featured on 100 Archive, a platform for contemporary visual communication made all over Ireland and by Irish designers overseas such as Deirdre Breen, Daniel O’Donoghue, Max Philips, Ruth Martin, Paula McEntee, Éanna O’Shea and Sinead McAleer.

In recent weeks, we have published several articles on the Eye blog. Read Nigel Ball’s ‘Ending the war on wildlife’, about Harry Woodgate’s science-driven illustration and design for Chris Packham’s A People’s Manifesto for Wildlife.
