Award Accolades for 21st Century Renaissance

21st Century Renaissance Awarded as Dublin’s Best Independent History Publishing Company

Congratulations to Publishing Ireland member 21st Century Renaissance for being accredited by EU Business News as Dublin’s Best Independent History Publishing Company in the Irish Enterprise Awards for 2022.

Founded by Alison Hackett in 2012, its first landmark publication, The Visual Time Traveller, became an art book, a talk and an exhibition which reinvented ways of engaging with history — through its carefully curated selections of facts presented literally and visually in five-year time jumps.  

The publishing house places the highest value on the imagination and skills of its Irish-based writers, illustrators and designers and maintains a focus on producing high quality print publications. Editing, design, print and binding are completed in Ireland whenever possible. In 2016, The Visual Time Traveller was selected by an international jury from a competitive field to be part of the Global Irish Design Challenge exhibitions organised by the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. Congratulations to Alison and the team!
