Including a specially commissioned piece by the French artist M. A. Thebault this exhibition will explore ogham and runic alphabets and the history and heritage of type in the Irish character from fresh and exciting angles in the historic building that housed the Irish College in Paris, a major centre of Gaelic cultural production, for 170 years.
