Dána Gránna, Nasty Words for People is a very special handmade book by Redfox Press in collaboration with Manchán Magan. Beautifully handbound, this hard-cover, thread-bound book contains 42 Irish words for nasty people collected by Manchán. These are accompanied by 42 drawings by Antic-Ham, who also designed the book.
Tiarpa-A fleshy, round-bummed person. A load carried low on one's back.
Gandal- An awkward person. Senseless talker. Cackler. A male goose.
Redfox Press is located in a small cottage overlooking the sea on Achill Island. Ham, along with her partner Francis specialise in screenprinting, photography, and artist book production. Other publications include Sea Tamagotchi and The Banshees of Inisherin on Achill Island.
