FIRST THINGS FIRST

ONE STRONG ARM WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO THE LAUNCH OF A NEW LETTERPRESS STUDIO IN THE HEART OF THE CITY WITH AN EXHIBITION OF LIMITED EDITION PRINTS.

To coincide with the launch of the letterpress studio, ONE STRONG ARM is delighted to present FIRST THINGS FIRST - an exhibition of limited edition letterpress prints. The exhibition inspired by classic works of literature will be held at the City Assembly House, Dublin 2 from November 13 through to November 16, 2014. 

One Strong Arm will join forces with celebrated illustrator and craftsperson, Mick Minogue to create a series of prints which merge the traditional with the contemporary, through typography and illustration. 

The series of prints produced using antique wooden and metal type take inspiration from the opening lines of classic literature spanning the last two centuries. 

The show will feature lines from the works of Beckett, Kafka and Hemmingway amongst others, with infamous quotes from novels including ‘1984’, ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’ to name but a few. 

The City Assembly House is home to the Irish Georgian Society which promotes Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts. It is an eighteenth-century building of historical, artistic and architectural importance and the perfect location for an event which brings together history, art and literature. 

The prints will be available on the evening and through OneStrongArm.comthereafter. Also on the night there will be a drinks reception with thanks toJameson Irish Whiskey with more details to follow. 

The exhibition will run until November 16 and is free and open to the public.
