Sharing the joy of children’s books

‘Tangleweed and Brine’ illustration exhibition


On the back of the release of Deirdre Sullivan’s latest book, Tangleweed and Brine, Little Island and Books Upstairs in Dublin city centre are hosting a special exhibition of the beautiful illustrations by Irish illustrator Karen Vaughan that feature in the book. 

This is a real treat for picture book enthusiasts and art lovers alike, who will certainly recognise Karen’s talent in her Harry Clarke-esque illustrations for this collection. Equally, Tangleweed and Brine‘s dark feminist retellings of traditional fairytales will appeal to anyone looking for something special to read or a gift book this Halloween.

The exhibition will run from 16 September until the end of the month but get there quick to snap up a unique print plus a copy of the book for just €30.
