‘A meeting in New York led to the conception of Irish Strategies, a collection of writing relevant to affairs in Ireland today. The dimension added by the artist, Bernard Childs, set the experimental approach to producing this limited edition which, in its combination of techniques and languages is, I think, a replication of the Irish dimension.’ Liam Miller.
