PUBLIC LECTURE & EXHIBITION
The Visual Time Traveller by Alison Hackett
Lecture RDS 2 Apr - 6pm
Exhibition RDS Library 2 Apr - 16 May
Alison Hackett has recently published a book called The Visual Time Traveller. This hard backed book is the first to be published by 21st Century Renaissance. It provides the reader with a graphically curated journey through history, art and science since the Renaissance in a series of 100 beautifully produced and original designs. In it she skilfully weaves fact and illustration, hero and event, personal and political to bring the reader on a fascinating journey through the ages - a visual and intellectual feast. The physical design of the publication (spineless in effect) is also a noteworthy feature.
Alison’s talk will cover aspects of the development of her book, the engagement and motivation to create it and the challenges faced by self-publishing. This talk will link in with an exhibition of a selection of designs from the book that will take place in the RDS Library.
The lecture will precede a reception for the launch of the exhibition in the RDS Library. - See more at: http://www.rds.ie/cat_event_detail.jsp?itemID=1103464#sthash.xlDRwNn1.dpuf
