Book of Kells

Show Synopsis

Created in Britain and Ireland between the seventh and tenth centuries, these manuscripts offer a brilliantly illuminated copy of the four Gospels with full-page illustrations of Christ, the Virgin, and the Evangelists, and a wealth of smaller decorative paintings that seem to have little to do with the sacred text. 58 illustrations, 48 in color.

great pix

the illustrations were wonderful and the accompanying commentary informative and not too verbose.
I will enjoy giving this book as a gift.

so-so

The book itself is decent, but i would've liked more pictures. (The hazard of buying online and not in person) So i wish i would've picked a different book, but if a good balance between information and illustrations on a simple level is what you want then this may be a good pick for you.
