Seditious Types
Printing the Proclamation by David Rooney. Extracted from 1916 Portraits and Lives published by the Royal Irish Academy in association with the Office of Public Works.

The growth of the print industry in Ireland from the 17th century onwards was linked to political and administrative change. Print forms spanned all social spheres including academic works, luxury accessories and administrative stationary. In 1916, printers transformed the words of artists, activists, politicians and industrialists into works of permanent form which survive today.
