Case Study

Monsignor Michael C. Olden, The Faith Journey of the Deise People

When Monsignor Michael C. Olden approached the DVF team in late 2017, asking for our help in the production of his book, titled: “The Faith Journey of the Deise People”, we were very happy to assist.

One of the reasons why Monsignor Olden wanted this type of book is because casebound books last far longer – often hundreds of years, and they also open flat, making them far easier to read. All church Bibles are casebound, so we can assume the Monsignor took at least some inspiration from that source.

The first challenge we faced with ‘The Faith Journey of the Déise People’ was that the book itself was 600 pages of handwritten text, so we advised on having it typeset before continuing any further.

Once the typesetting of was complete, Monsignor Olden then engaged the services of local photographer Terry Murphy to visit with him and photograph the numerous churches in Waterford, Kilkenny and Tipperary. Based on that we then had an estimated 100 images to include in the book.

Several months, and hundreds of hours later, we were delighted to present the finished product to Monsignor Olden – all 434 pages of it.

The Faith Journey of the Deise People
This book was a passion project for the Monsignor – one which he had already dedicated 12 years of his life to, starting the project when he was 74 years young.
