After almost 5 years of digitising content for brandnewretro.ie the time is right to bring these scans back to the format in which they first appeared, and the format in which they are best appreciated. Print.
I am delighted to announce that the Brand New Retro book will be on sale from early November.
The book is a uniquely Irish compendium of
over 700 images, adverts and articles featuring the best bits from brandnewretro.ie along with lots of new scans.
The book is published by Liberties Press and will be launched at Eason bookstore, O’Connell Street, Dublin on Thursday, November 12.
