Kells TypeTrail, now in its tenth year, is an annual festival celebrating typography and lettering as a modern art form. Each year one word is translated into a variety of languages reflecting the diversity of the community in Kells. This takes the form of up to 30 indoor and outdoor art installations, which form a walking trail around the town.
Mostly temporary in nature, each year one piece is chosen as a TypeTrail legacy piece with the long-term objective of a permanent TypeTrail presence in the town. This is a collaborative commission culminating in a unique continuous live performance by Tom French word and Danny Diamond fiddle. Be prepared for Creedence, the Dead, Janis and Jimi and a lot more besides. It was one of the biggest news stories of the infant twentieth century. It was a narrative of heroism, selfsacrifice, cowardice and abject failure. In this original and meticulously-researched narrative history, Gareth Russell uses the sinking of the Titanic , the ship of dreams, as a prism through which to look at the end of the Edwardian era and the seismic shift to modernity the s have come to mark in the West.
In his study Russell, an historian and novelist from Belfast — the birthplace of the ill-fated RMS Titanic — examines social class, the movie industry, the American Gilded Age and the Irish Home Rule crisis through that Titanic window.

Citizen: Into the Hinterlands 1 by John Lambshead and David Drake (2012, Paperback)
Weapons were restricted to spring-power think sling shots and spear guns. May 31, James rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction , sf. This is an SF version of George Washington's life. The science has been forced a bit so that it can be loosely the 18th century in space. George has been whitewashed, he owns indentured servants and not slaves and the Riders are much more primitive and savage than NA Indians, so it's OK to kill them. He's done this before with Patriots which was a fictional Ethan Allen, who in my mind is a much more interesting and sympathetic character than a Southern Aristocratic Planter.
Jun 19, Nathan rated it liked it Shelves: reviewed , sci-fi. As a stand alone book it leaves me pretty unfulfilled. The plot closed too much too quickly and the depth that I have come to expect from Drake just isn't there. As the start to a series, it shows immense promise. Might want to hold off on reading this one until book 2 comes available.
