Product description

George Callaghan was born in Country Antrim, Northern Ireland in 1941, attending Caris Glen Primary School up the Old Park Road. At the age of four, his family emigrated to South Africa where he was unfortunately "educated" in the ways of Apartheid. He also became the "Western Province Boxing Champion" (Gnat weight division). At the age of 14, the impending death of his Grandfather forced the family to return to Belfast, throwing him, again unfortunately in the deep end of sectarianism.

George attended Ashfield secondary intermediate (technical section) where he attained 9 distinctions in his junior certificate. He left school at 15 to work at Nicholson and Bass (printers and box makers, Alfred Street, Belfast) as an apprentice commercial Artist. A year later he commenced studying Art at Belfast College of Art on a Scholarship (returning to Nicholson and Bass to work during the summer vacations).

George started work in Dublin as a junior designer with Janus Advertising Agency and 8 months later moved to Kenny's Advertising Agency as a senior designer. He then moved to London as a designer, 8 months later he migrated to Sydney, Australia. For a year he worked as a senior designer at McCann Erickson then moved to Leo Burnett's where he stayed for the next 11 years as Art Director.

Advertising burnt him out at the age of 32, he then moved to the Australian Island State of Tasmania where he lived for 27 years. He produced the States first Stirling Silver Jewellery Exhibition and was commissioned by the Bishop of Bendigo to design and fabricate the Biships Crosier, Bishops ring and Crucifix. George also designed and fabricated the Helena Rubinstein Sterling Silver Silk design award statuette for fashion.

Excellent pages, a little edge and cover wear + some staining to top of first 20 pages.
