The Book of Kells: 5-Year Journal (Thames & Hudson Gift) (Hardcover)
A beautifully-produced five-year journal featuring details from the magnificent Book of Kells
The Book of Kells is a masterpiece of western calligraphy, undoubtedly the finest remaining example of an illuminated manuscript, and one of the most important surviving artifacts from medieval Europe. Named after the Abbey of Kells, some forty miles north of Dublin, where it was held for centuries, the Book of Kells was produced around the year 800 CE, probably in both Scotland and Ireland. It is a text of the four Gospels in Latin, employing expert calligraphy and decoration, rare colors, and other embellishments that make it a true work of art.
Paying homage to the incredible beauty of the Book of Kells, this exquisitely-produced five-year journal offers ample space to record plans, ideas, reflections, and more.
