Leopold’s Day is a collection of beautifully designed pieces inspired by Leopold Bloom’s journey through Dublin on 16th June 1904. This carefully designed range is centred around a beautifully crafted map formed purely from the people, premises and places cited in Ulysses.

This is the first time a map of Dublin city has been created which captures the landmarks and actual people who featured in the famous text. Every detail has been carefully selected to capture the essence of the day when Bloom ventured through the city; the main typeface of the map is a digitised version of the typeface used in Ulysses’ first edition. The map’s directory features over four hundred landmarks and businesses, which formed the backdrop to Ulysses and were in existence in Dublin on that monumental day when Leopold Bloom journeyed through the city.

Leopold’s Day offers a unique perspective of Ulysses by mapping Dublin through the eyes of Joyce.

The Leopold's Day maps have been featured in numerous publications around the world and received much critical acclaim. The hero map is a limited edition, coinciding with the first print run of Ulysses. These maps are perfect gifts for the typographer, Joycean or Dubliner in your life.

'At first glance it looks like an elegant textual map and it takes closer inspection to reveal its true literary colours... A clever and beautiful way to respect our literary heritage? We think so.'  Laurence Mackin, The Irish Times.
