James Joyce’s Ulysses – Bloomsday

 

Ulysses

Today is Bloomsday! James Joyce’s Ulysses took place on a single day, June 16, 1904. To celebrate, we created a “Mkgnao” bookmark with a hand-drawn cat silhouette. This reference is from Chapter 4, Calypso, when Leopold Bloom is first introduced:

“The cat walked stiffly round a leg of the table with tail on high.
—Mkgnao!
—O, there you are, Mr Bloom said, turning from the fire. The cat mewed in answer and stalked again stiffly round a leg of the table, mewing. Just how she stalks over my writingtable. Prr. Scratch my head. Prr.”
