Mr Bloom is the main character in James Joyce's Ulysses. This image is taken from a drawing on a napkin done by James Joyce in Myron Nutting´s studio in Paris during the 1920´s.
Bloomsday - June 16th - is an annual celebration among Joyce fans throughout the world, from Fort Lauderdale to Melbourne. It is celebrated in at least sixty countries worldwide, but nowhere so imaginatively, of course, as in Dublin. The novel, Ulysses, by James Joyce recounts the hour-by-hour events of one day in Dublin - June 16, 1904 - as an ordinary Dubliner, Leopold Bloom, wends his way through the urban landscape, the odyssey of a modern-day Ulysses. ReJoyce Dublin!
