Fatti Burke and John Burke
£21.99 hardback Gill Books (2016)
It’s A Time-Travelling Journey Through Ireland... It’s A Historopedia!
Buckle up and get ready to travel back in time with John and Fatti Burke’s new adventure through Ireland’s history. This breathtakingly exciting book discovers Ireland, era by era, as you’ve never seen it before.
Time travellers of any age will be totally absorbed by Fatti Burke’s detailed illustrations and her father John’s fabulous facts to be discovered on every page.
A perfect introduction to Ireland’s history for young and old, this illustrated journey travels from earliest settlements right up to the present day. Take a trip through time and meet courageous Celts, rampaging Vikings and rebellious republicans. Historopedia looks at wars and disasters; introduces artists, explorers and leaders; and shows us castles, cottages and tenements.
You’ll discover how we lived, what we ate, what we wore and even what school was like! And it doesn’t neglect the imagination: here, too, are mythical figures and TV characters, alongside world-changing inventions borne from the minds of Irish scientists and explorers.
So, time travellers, are you ready to go on the adventure of a lifetime?
