Welcome to Folding Landscapes

Tim Robinson Connemara The Last Pool of Darkness coverFolding Landscapes is a specialist publishing house and information resource centre dealing with three areas of particular interest and beauty around Galway Bay: the Aran Islands, the Burren and Connemara.

Folding Landscapes was set up in 1984 by Máiréad and Tim Robinson, and has its studio on the quayside in Roundstone. Its main purpose is to publish Tim Robinson’s maps and some of his books. These maps, renowned for scholarly exactitude and artistry, are widely used in university departments and schools. They inform the discriminating visitor about the region’s culture and landscapes, and nourish community spirit by identifying the irreplaceable uniqueness of local environment and history.

Folding Landscapes won the Ford Ireland Conservation Award in 1987, and went on as Ireland’s official entry to win the European award in Madrid, where the Mayor of Madrid’s citation especially commended the project’s “unique combination of culture, heritage and conservation”.
