Scope and Content

Print of book cover design for ‘Guide to the National Monuments of Ireland’ written by Peter Harbison and published by Gill & Macmillan. Cover features two images, one possible charcoal rendering of a stone carving, the second a charcoal drawing of brooch. This was the second edition of the guide to be published in Ireland. De FOuw and an archaeologist created the first edition together. The Office of Public Works (OPW) and Bord Failte gave De Fouw a box of ephemera and asked him to create a pocket guide. It took three years to compile and this second guide written by Peter Harbison grew from the original.
