The Book of Kells is the finest example of early Christian art of its kind, and one of the most beautiful books of the early Middle Ages. The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript, a copy of the four New Testament gospels in Latin. For this striking coloring book, artist Marty Noble has expertly rendered 28 full-page black and white reproductions of the Book of Kell's elaborate artistic ornamentation. Included are eye-catching borders filled with abstract Celtic spirals and interlacements, celestial figures, images of saints, members of the Holy Family, as well as Celtic crosses and other finely detailed floral, animal, human, and other fantastic elements. An excellent opportunity for coloring book enthusiasts to participate directly in reproducing one of the great masterpieces of Celtic art. This collection of art from the Book of Kells provides artists of all ages a lesson in ancient Christian art as well as hours and hours of intricate and detailed coloring entertainment. The final product may be so beautiful that you'll have to frame it!
