The 'Imagination Dead Imagine' portfolio received the Fine Press Book Association Judges Choice Award 2015

This new edition of loose sheets celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original publishing in 1965.
The project is a collaboration between typographic designer Jamie Murphy & visual artist David O'Kane.
The work is introduced with an essay by renowned Beckett scholar Stanley E Gontarski.
The portfolio was officially launched in Dublin at the Long Room Library in Trinity College on the 10th of August.
It is already held in prestigious collections such as Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Florida State and Arizona State Universities,
Trinity College Dublin, the National Library of Ireland and National Irish Visual Art Library.
The exhibition will coincide with the launch of the portfolio in Germany at the Josef Filipp Galerie in Leipzig.
