The National Print Museum is delighted to announce Cairde Cló - a new series of virtual visits to "print friends" nationally and internationally.
The first visit, chaired by Mary Plunkett, is to the studio of Dave Darcy of One Strong Arm. OSA is a letterpress print studio based in the heart of Dublin city. Dave creates contemporary typography-led work using traditional methods. The studio’s output usually involves an ever-growing collection of antique wood and metal type, but on occasion it will also include some more modern techniques and processes. While much of OSA’s work comes in the form of self-initiated projects Dave also works closely with designers, artists, agencies, writers, musicians, illustrators, collaborators, experimenters and co-conspirators to create thoughtfully produced work of all kinds.
