    DescriptionAn inspiration for artists, these are original studies of animal ornaments drawn from the famous "Book of Kells" by Aidan Meehan. Works of art in themselves, the large-scale drawings developed from motifs from the four main categories of animal patterns used throughout the "Book of Kells" - cats, birds, eels and little people -which are often difficult to make out or incomplete in the original. Where the original detail is too miniaturized to allow for conventional contour lines inside the animals' bodies, the author has applied the conventions of large-scale treatments true to other designs in "The Book of Kells". On each page the folio number from "The Book of Kells" from which the design has been derived is given so that you can relate it to the original manuscript and its colour scheme. Each design is easy to print and frame.
