Dublin Bay: From Killiney to Howth

Brian Lalor, Author O'Brien Press $0 (160p) ISBN 978-0-86278-203-0
The chameleon-like aspects of Dublin's famous port are captured by Irish artist-archeologist Lalor in this multifaceted visual history. In 10 sections, with approximately 150 pen-and-ink sketches and illuminating text, the author records ``Dublin Bay as it now is, representing both much which remains unaltered from the last two centuries as well as all that has happened since.'' The bay region we're shown encompasses various vistas: playgrounds, historical monuments, villas and villages, as well as the machinery of modern commerce. A gifted artist, Lalor renders the area's character while depicting well-known, distinctive locations along the length of the shore. (July)
