Ireland’s National Print Museum in Dublin gives the age-old print industry a new lease of life in exhibiting the many advances and changes to have happened in printing over centuries. Tracing the earliest appearance of print in Ireland to the presses existing in Renaissance times, the collections of documents and equipment involved in this fine craft are among the most wide-ranging and formidable in the world.
Visitors and enthusiasts of design and print will be thrilled to see the range of printing machines on display, with details about typography and best practices in the printing craft relayed. Some of the equipment is still operational, and is used to educate students of printing in achieving the greatest impact and depth with this valued skill. Also present are exhibitions on the power that good graphic design and print can exude, such as in political and protest posters. Furthermore, the principles of creating good magazine and book cover designs are also investigated.
