On May 17, 1991, world-renowned photojournalists from 15 countries set out to create a 24-hour "visual time capsule" of Ireland. From an artists' colony to a microchip research facility built in a former distillery, from the pop music scene to a leading surgical unit, this 11th book in the award-winning Day in the Life series is an eloquent testament to a country still immersed in ancient myths and history as it moves into the next century. 200 photographs.

On one day in May 1991 more than 75 distinguished photographers undertook to capture on film the many sides of Ireland and its people. As with previous Day in the Life explorations of other countries, the photographs provide a stunning panorama of everyday life in a variety of settings, from pastoral to urban, from working-class neighborhoods to country estates. Celebrating the land and its citizens, these 200 mainly color photographs are accompanied by maps indicating the location of each and by concise captions. Subjects include a Benedictine nun on a monastery farm, a man soaking in his bath at a spa, a covey of "punk rockers" in a Dublin neighborhood, the bishop of Cork putting "a little body Irish" on a road bowling match. A feast for the eyes is the result of an impressively coordinated project that, though ambitious, makes no claim as a definitive record of a complex country. 90,000 first printing; major ad/promo; first serial to Islands magazine.
