The Dead Pigeon On A Branch That Looks Like Ireland (Tadhg O’Halloran)

Today marks the first day of production on the Broadsheet Book Of Things That Look Like Ireland (New Island).

We hope to have it unsold and existential on all good bukeshelves by March 17.

We have chosen Aware as the recipient of any proceeds should the book make anything that looks like money.

Aidan Coughlan, whose US election night bike wheel theft moved many of our readers last year, and researcher Elaine Herbert, a keen student of cartography, head up the book’s editing and publication team.

If you have any last minute unspecified things that look like Ireland Aidan and Elaine would love to hear from you. Images to  ireland@broadsheet.ie
