    Ballinger and Spectral used together for a book series conceived and designed by Karl Toomey (KTOOMS). In the author’s own words:

    If you’ve ever wondered how far it is to Tipperary, I may have the book series for you. Created during lockdown, and using the 1912 hit tune It’s a Long Way To Tipperary as inspiration, this is an eight-part walking tour cobbled together from home using Google Maps and Wikipedia. Kicking off in London (home to both myself and the song’s fabled homesick Irishman), our tour heads west across England, Wales and the Irish Sea before plodding inland to our final destination, Tipperary in Ireland.

    The images show the first realized volume, “Stage 01: London to Oxford”, with seven more in the making.
