Originally in hardback, this bestselling title is now available in paperback.

Dublin: An Urban History, a much expanded version of a book with a similar title published in 1989, has sold out several print runs and has now been reprinted and sized down to a lighter, paperback copy. It is still replete with over 350 illustrations and photographs of the city.

Written by one of Ireland’s leading architects, the book is an exploration of Dublin’s city plan over time and provides a fascinating insight into the development of the city. It explores how settlers such as the Vikings and the Normans still influence the city plan we know today through overbuilding that has taken place through the years, and how looking at the layers underneath today’s Dublin can reveal much about our ancestors.

The book looks at the way architecture, geography and history become intrinsically linked in a city like Dublin and addresses the evolution of attitudes to designing and building both public and private spaces. 

'Dublin an Urban History represents the single most important visual resource for the appearance of the Georgian city in or out of print...This is a must -have book for all those interested in the history and topography of the city of Dublin.'  Irish Arts Review
