Irish Publishers-Associated Editions

For the next in my profile series of Irish Publishers I am looking at Associated Editions based in Dublin.

Associated Editions specialises in the publication of illustrated books on a number of  different subjects. These include Architecture, Art, Art History, Artists Books, Children's Books, Design, Limited Editions, Music and Social History. They have several new releases in these subject areas; Gloria: An Introduction to 1000 Years of European Sacred Music by Tim Thurston and  Dublin: An Urban History by Niall McCullough.

Tim Thurston hosts a weekly Sunday morning radio programme on RTÉ Lyric FM ‘Gloria’, and this book & CD ‘Gloria – An Introduction to 1000 years of European Sacred Music' tells the story of European sacred music from earliest times to the present day. The book is interspersed with pen portraits of  composers and is illustrated with Sacred Art for Christmas from Irish collections including Trinity College Dublin, the Hunt Museum, the Ulster Museum, the National Gallery of Ireland, Waterford Museum of Treasures, the Chester Beatty Library and Glenstal Abbey. The book includes a CD of Christmas music.

Dublin was one of Europe's largest cites in the 18th century and this book is about its contribution to the history of European urbanism and its physical structure.
Dublin An Urban History is written by one of Ireland's leading architects and  explores the city plan over time. The book is a beautifully designed with more than 350 illustrations and photographs and it gives an insight into the cities development.
