*The Louvain and Rome Irish Types of the Irish Franciscans*

*Thursday 12th March – 7.30 p.m.*

By Dr. Dermot McGuinne

This talk is an illustrated account of the 17th century printing types prepared for use in the Irish language publications of the early Irish Franciscans working in exile in Europe and their influence on later designs.

Dermot McGuinne gained his primary degree and early experience as a graphic designer in the United States where he later held the position of Art Director of the University of Iowa Press for a number of years before returning to Ireland. He was awarded his doctorate from Trinity College Dublin for work completed on the subject of the “Irish Character in Print” and is author of Irish Type Design and various articles on this topic. He recently retired from his position as Head of Departments of Visual Communication and Fine Art at the Dublin Institute of Technology.
