Library Display: C'est Mon Dada

This month's library display is of artists' books in the C'est Mon Dada series.
C’est Mon Dada is a collection of small artists' books dedicated to experimental, concrete and visual poetry, or any work combining text and visual arts in the spirit of Dada or Fluxus.
The collection is published by Red Fox Press in Dugort, Achill Island, County Mayo, Ireland. Each issue comes in A6 format with 40 pages. Previous contributors include Luc Fierens, Alec Finlay and Theo Breuer.
“C'est mon dada" is a French phrase meaning “It's my favourite thing” or “It's my hobby”. Dada in the language of French children means horse.
The display can be viewed on the top floor of the Main Library
