We are Irish-German creative couple, Niall Laverty and Maite López.
We write, illustrate and self-publish our literary guides and gifts in Dublin, Ireland. Niall likes to twirl his moustache as he dreams up visual puns, and Maite eats books for breakfast washed down with a mug of coffee.
We fell in love at a Millenium New Year’s Eve Party in Germany
... and our adventure started by moving to Ireland and bringing Irish literature to life with At it Again!
After celebrating James Joyce’s Ulysses on Bloomsday, we wanted to inspire more people to go on their own literary adventure.
Our romp through Irish literature began!
Starting as a passion project, our first pocket guide, Romping through Ulysses, was unleashed to make readers chuckle and give them unexpected insights into Joyce, his big book and the places that inspired him. People loved it so much that we thought, why not tackle other Irish literature? Hungry to discover the Irish roots of iconic books and their creators, our next victim was Dracula.
