Cuala Press Slideshow from @BC

Founded in 1902 by W.B. Yeats's sisters Elizabeth and Susan, the Cuala Press was intended as a showcase for the writers of the Irish Literary Revival and published the work of John Millington Synge, Lady Gregory, W.B. Yeats, among others.
Among the works produced by Cuala was a series of 153 hand-colored Christmas cards, 15 of which are featured in a slideshow on the @BC website. They are drawn from Boston College’s extensive Irish Collection at the John J. Burns Library, which includes many Cuala works—from limited-edition booklets and art prints, to bookplates, proofs, and misprinted pages.

@BC is a website for multimedia productions that illuminate Boston College and address its institutional themes and concerns. @BC is created and developed by staff of the Office of Marketing Communications, which also produces, among many other projects, Boston College Magazine, a quarterly publication, and Boston College Front Row—where viewers may stream video recordings of Irish Studies lectures and events.
