10 years of 'Books Ireland', a magazine for book enthusiasts.

The magazine 'Books Ireland' was founded in 1976 and since then 100 editions have been published and made available for sale on news stands, through postal subscriptions and in libraries. Founder of the magazine Jeremy Addis discusses the sales and distribution of the title both at home and abroad. 

It's very exciting doing a book magazine because books are so infinitely variable... I mean they're like human beings.

Editor Bernard Share describes the readership of the magazine,

The magazine is really for people who are interested in books.

The magazine content is predominantly Irish and editorially completely independent according to Share.

This report also features designer Jarlath Hayes who makes decisions with the editor about layout, typography and use of imagery.
