The Cat and the Moon By W B Yeats
The Cat and the Moon poem written in 1917 was used as opening lines for the chorus in Yeats' 1926 haunting play of the same name.
Our contemproary visual take is a stunning image from NASA of the world as a marbled eye observing a stunningly desolate moon fixed in the heavens to "trouble our animal blood".
Working with Sligo based graphic designer Daragh Stuart we have set the poetry of W.B. Yeats against a variety of images, including 1837 antiquarian maps of the County Sligo locations that inspired him to write some of his greatest poetry. The prints are wonderful gifts, a little piece of Sligo for visitors to take away and for family and friends overseas.
Giclee prints are a state-of-the-art rendering, merging professional grade digital print with archival pigment inks and fine-art watercolour papers. The paper used is an acid free unbuffered pulp which along with the pigmented inks will last over 75 years without fading, if not displayed in direct sunlight
