Clifden: A Reflection on 200 Years

Clifden’s 200th Birthday Project

We were approached to design this celebration souvenir booklet on Clifden’s two-hundred year past. We met with the committee and discussed a document plan. Contribution to the main content was made by the committee, composed of historians, engineers and archaeologists, along with contributions from the whole community.

Clifden: A Reflection on 200 Years is a 72 page soft-back book, perfect bound, with a vintage aesthetic approach to the design. The design was inspired by the spirit of the well-researched articles contained in the book, as well as by the many old photographs of the town of Clifden and its people. It was launched in Clifden in December 2011. It was very warmly received and since then has sold many copies with a second reprint due in the spring.
