Ospina - West Cork Inspires. Ospina, Alison. West Cork Inspires. With photography by Roland Paschhoff. Ammanford, Stobart Davies Limited, 2011. 4°. 175 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket. Excellent – as new – condition. Signed by the author.

During the 1960s and the following decades a significant number of artists and craftspeople began moving to West Cork, following their dream of a simple life in an unspoilt landscape. They were attracted to West Cork in particular by the stunning landscapes and low property prices but as the creative community grew, it became an attraction in its own right. For a brief period, a rare combination of circumstances existed in the region which facilitated the growth of arts and crafts in West Cork and gained the region a glowing reputation for its unique culture, combining a laid back life style with traditional country living. West Cork Inspires tells the story of the creative community in West Cork and profiles twenty-two of its most outstanding protagonists.

Alison Ospina lives in The Wooden House with her husband José, near Skibbereen, in the heart of West Cork. Through her work as a green wood chair maker, she has become deeply fascinated by the exceptional work created by outstanding craftspeople in the region. Alison is a member of the West Cork Craft and Design Guild and has previously written Green Wood Chairs Chairs and Chair Makers of Ireland.
