In the UK when you turn 100 you get a telegram from the Queen congratulating you on notching up this chronological milestone. It’s a nice touch from Her Majesty, you’ve got to admit (although I have my suspicions how involved she actually is in the administrative rigmarole). But when it turned 100 (issues) old, Irish free sheet Totally Dublin did something much more fun by asking 100 prominent Dubliners for their predictions for how the city might change and grow over the next century. And not only that, they also commissioned illustrator Stephen Graham to provide the visuals for the piece and he stepped up in style providing a striking set of varied images which as editor Daniel Gray puts it, “lends the story a nicely ambiguous identity –neither too utopian nor dystopian.”
Great stuff Stephen!
