Copyright 1998-2016. I drew this using The Frontespiece from the Book of Kells 800 AD as reference. My original drawing is approximately 16x20 inches. It is printed onto gold parchment card. The print is 8x10 inches with an 11x14 black matte. A very detailed drawing which took me several months to complete!

The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created in a Columban monastery in either Britain or Ireland or may have had contributions from various Columban institutions from both Britain and Ireland. It is believed to have been created c. 800. The text of the Gospels is largely drawn from the Vulgate, although it also includes several passages drawn from the earlier versions of the Bible known as the Vetus Latina. It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. It is also widely regarded as Ireland's finest national treasure.
