This oversized book reproduces the Book of Kells, both pages and individual sections, in glorious color. It includes an essay from Françoise Henry, a scholar of early Irish art, on the history of the c. 800 CE manuscript. The book, an illuminated Gospel in Latin, was originally produced on vellum and housed in the Abbey of Kells in County Meath, Ireland. The images combine early Christian iconography with Celtic embellishments, including knots and patterns, that emphasize the illustrations’ themes. This edition is a great addition to the collection of anyone interested in Irish art, culture, or medieval society.… (mer)

I shall always be indebted to my students, who gifted me with this beautiful volume.… (mer)

One of the most important books in Celtic history, The Book of Kells is held at Trinity College. The incredible artwork is easily a basis for a great deal of Celtic artwork found today. Kells is a sacred book to many Pagans of a Celtic based tradition. This is a beautiful example of Kells and what it's about.
