This is study of Celtic manuscripts with a collection of 16 alphabets of decorated letters. Some of the Celtic styles represented are knotwork, animal, spiral, maze and plant and the alphabet of lions from the Book of Kells is recreated. From 6th-century birds to late medieval dragons, from early Celtic spirals to the later Tree of Life - the text shows the evolution of the letter forms, from Roman to Irish Gothic.
