who we are

Road books have been produced by writer Judy Kravis and artist Peter Morgan up a hill in Inniscarra, County Cork, since 1992. The range of their work is reflected in the road books imprints: public access, boreen, highway, byways and roadworks. They work together, in collaboration with groups, and individually. Editions range from one to several hundred, both handmade and commercially printed. Every force evolves a form.

Recently they initiated a move towards sharing the rural environment they have created—planting woodland, restoring meadowland and habitats—and began to invite artists, writers and environmentalists to come and use the space. The enthusiasm of visitors gave rise to the idea of building a cabin for people to stay in.

Judy Kravis writes, watches, listens, interviews the dead as well as the living, blogs about the books she reads and where she reads them. www.pocketbook.ie

Peter Morgan works with photography, text, moving images and 3-D objects. His approach is often humorous and conceptual. www.petermorgan.ie

They regularly show at small press and artist’s book fairs. Their books are in the collections of Tate Britain, Victoria and Albert Museum, Artphilein Foundation, Royal College, Chelsea, Slade, Winchester and Limerick schools of art, University College Cork, University of Wales Institute, Saison Poetry Library and National Irish Visual Arts Library, Dublin.
