The Star Cinema in Ballyhaunis, Co Mayo formed the subject matter for this artist book. The cinema, which closed in 2002, played a pivotal role in the life of the town, providing decades of entertainment to the local population and consequently becoming the setting of many stories, romances and various minor happenings.

This book was hand bound using a Drum leaf stitch. Book information: ‘The Star’, 2008, edition 1/1, 14 pages, watercolour drawings on paper, 138 x 165 x 14 mm.
