Leopold’s Day offers a unique perspective of Ulysses by mapping Dublin through the eyes of Joyce.
Leopold’s Day is a collection of beautifully designed pieces inspired by Leopold Bloom’s journey through Dublin on 16th June 1904. The carefully designed range is centered 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.
