Designer: Robin Fuller

Treasures of the National Folklore Collection/Seoda as Cnuasach Bhéaloideas Éireann is a collection of sixteen essays, with a Foreword by Dr T.K. Whitaker.

Red Dog was commissioned to design and produce this commemorative book to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Irish Folklore Commission. The book showcases some unique illustrations, paintings, photographs, manuscripts, music transcriptions and books held within their archive that provide a fascinating insight to Irish culture during the first half of the twentieth century. The design encapsulated the charm and diversity of the

materials with a contemporary look and feel.
