Robert Tressel Badge
This unusual badge celebrates the Irish author Robert Tressel and his all time classic book – The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists. While Tressel (born Robert Noonan) was a somewhat forgotten figure in his native Dublin he gained worldwide posthumous fame as an author.
Three years after his death ‘The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists’ was published and proved an all time classic. The book influenced Orwell and Tressel’s searing and at times harrowing portrayal of working class life garunteed its enduring popularity.
There is a very limited number of these badges available.
