An Leabhar Mòr - The Great Book of Gaelic

£60.00

Product description

In Gaelic and English. The Great Book of Gaelic brings together more than 200 poets, visual artists and calligraphers from Ireland and Scotland to create a major contemporary artwork in the form of a visual anthology. Features full-page, full-colour plates of the artwork, the Gaelic poems with selected lines presented as calligraphy, full English translations and information on all the contributors.
The 100 Gaelic poems that make up the Leabhar Mòr were selected by 30 leading Gaelic poets from both countries who nominated one of their own works plus another 70 from the canon of Gaelic poetry. The selection features work from almost every century from the 6th to the 21st and includes the earliest Gaelic poetry in existence. Comedy, tragedy, love, death, the spiritual and the bawdy are all represented. The nominating poets include Aonghas MacNeacail, Derick Thomson, Meg Bateman, Nuala Ni Dhomhnall, Michael Davitt, and Cathal O Searcaigh.
The 100 visual artists - 50 from each country - were commissioned to respond to the poetry in a variety of media. The artists include Allan Davie, Will Maclean, Frances Walker, Calum Colvin, Anna Macleod, Brian McGuire, Rita Duffy, John Bellany, and Alasdair Gray. A small team of calligraphers and typographer Don Addison worked in collaboration with the artists and poets to integrate the key lines of poetry and the artists' images.
Black cloth boards, spine and pictorial dust jacket in pristine condition. Gilt titles to spine. Tight binding. Clean edges. Contents very clean and bright, free from damage, marks or inscriptions.
