Cuala Press: Women in PrintExhibition: McCabe Library Atrium
Cuala Press was a private, Irish, female-run press in the early 20th century, headed by Elizabeth Yeats (sister of poet William Butler Yeats) with the assistance of her sister Lily Yeats and their friend Evelyn Gleeson. The press began with the name Dun Emer Press in 1902 and later changed to Cuala Press in 1904. This exhibition highlights works from both the Dun Emer and Cuala Presses in our collection, most of which were donated to the Libraries by Kevin Quigley ‘74 and his wife Susan Flaherty, and includes 73 hand-colored woodblock prints and broadsides.
There will be a gallery tour by co-curator Lemuel L’Oiseau ‘25 on Friday, February 2nd at 4:30 PM in the McCabe Library Atrium, followed by refreshments.
