A mesmerising portal. A wash of gentle colour does something that no words or dramatic re-staging can do, bringing the past and authentic personalities of the period vividly to the present moment. ... It goes far, far deeper than seeing vivid blossom on long dead trees. The essential truth, that these people lived their life in colour, removes distance and collapses time it s confronting, humanising and rather magical. ...A beautifully, carefully curated, well written and technically brilliant book highly recommended. --Kya Delongchamps, Irish Examiner

Incredibly poignant, beautiful photographs of old Ireland, given a modern twist. --Chrissie Russell, Irish Independent

Astonishing --The Irish News
