The Book of Kells

Available on Request ~ 2009

An original artwork, 12″x16″ piece available on request.

Seeing The Book of Kells up close at the library in Trinity College, Dublin was a dream come true. Early manuscripts, the lettering and the illumination, were a strong influence on my passion for calligraphy. This Gaelic rendition of The Birds of Friendship is written in an uncial hand with the translation in Roman capitals. The Celtic representation of two pairs of interlacing birds echoes the words beautifully.
