Dublin in Sketches and Stories

Róisín Curé sketches what she sees, wherever she is, from the mundane to the magnificent, and everything in between. With her ears and eyes open, she immerses herself in the urban scene and creates a snippet of the world around her in words and pictures, with nothing more hi-tech than a fountain pen and a small box of watercolours.

The bustling, busy city of Dublin is captured here in all its grit and glory, through its buildings and people along with conversations with its inhabitants. You won’t find these stories in any guidebook, as they ebbed and flowed like the ink and paint used to create this very intimate portrait of Dublin and its people. And in this perfect coffee-table book, Roisin Cure has done just that.

Whether the genteel grandeur of Merrion Square or the raw vibrancy of Moore Street, Curé has it covered. With more than 100 lively new artworks, Dublin: Sketches and Stories is a joyous snapshot of the beating heart of the Fair City.
