Occasional Press was set up by David Lilburn and Jim Savage, both visual artists living and working in Ireland.

David Lilburn is predominently a Printmaker and is based in Limerick and Jim Savage works mostly in the medium of large-scale drawing and is based in Co.Cork. With Occasional Press they aim to publish art-related projects that they find of particular interest and value. As the name suggests, they publish as and when they have the means to do so.
