This set of nine Dublin-themed blocks represent some of my favourite landmarks in the city: One of the many beautifully cast streetlamps; the sea monsters guarding Kilmainham gaol; the huge Celtic cross at Glasnevin Cemetery; the Ha’penny Bridge*; a vintage map of the East of Ireland; the St Stephen’s Centre, whose dripping façade I loved; the Jeanie Johnston sailing ship; the reflection of the Customs House in the window of one of the modern buildings across the Quay; and the glorious Calatrava Sean O’Casey bridge across the Liffey.
This listing is for nine separate, solid pine wood photo block typically described as 4×4 inches, though the milled size puts them closer to 3.5 inches square. They are just shy of 1 inch deep. The toner print is applied and revealed by hand, and is drawn from my personal photography, with the exception of the Ha’penny bridge, which is used with the CC permission of Flickr user Heather R, and the map which is a vintage stock photo. The back of each piece (excepting the Ha’penny) is titled, signed and dated in ink. You may receive different prints to the ones shown in this listing’s photographs. The blocks do not line up perfectly flush, giving them a shabby chic/boho look.
The blocks are sold without any hanging hardware. I recommend mounting them with Command Strips, arranging them in a deep frame, or standing it upright on a desk, shelf or mantelpiece – it will stand on any flat surface. Note that the wood will deepen into a honey colour with prolonged exposure to direct sunlight (I think this makes the wood look nicer!)
