The finest 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 copy of the four gospels of the New Testament in Latin. For this striking coloring book, Marty Noble has expertly rendered 28 full-page black-and-white reproductions of the book'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 fantastic elements.
An excellent opportunity for coloring book enthusiasts to participate directly in reproducing one of the great masterpieces of Celtic art, this collection also provides artists of all ages with hours of coloring entertainment presented in a unique format.
