Describe an average day at At it Again! HQ
Our days are surrounded by books and a pot of coffee researching or writing drafts for our next pocket guide to Irish literature or working on illustrations. We could also be moustache twirling as we brainstorm ideas for new products or working on a commission. Some days you can find us around the city sniffing out literary places to add to our guides while other days, we are meeting new clients, delivering our goodies to retailers or attending events and festivals.
