The Book of Kells: An Illustrated Introduction (paperback) NEW! 

THE BOOK OF KELLS
An Illustrated Introduction


The Book of Kells is a masterpiece of medieval art-a brilliantly decorated version of the four Gospels with full-page depictions of Christ, the Virgin, and the Evangelists, as well as a wealth of smaller decorative painting. The strange imagination displayed in the pages, the impeccable technique, and the very fine state of preservation make The Book of Kells an object of endless fascination.

This edition reproduces the most important of the fully decorated pages plus a series of enlargements showing the almost unbelievable minuteness of the detail; spiral and interlaced patterns, human and animal ornament-a combination of high seriousness and humor. The text is by Bernard Meehan, the Keeper of Manuscripts at Trinity College, Dublin.

Paperback, 110 color illustrations, 96 pages, 7-1/2" x 9-3/4"

Angelic Mistakes: The Art of Merton (hardcover)

BARGAIN PRICE!

ANGELIC MISTAKES
The Art of Thomas Merton


In the last decade of his life, Thomas Merton created a provocative body of visual art that has remained largely unknown and unexamined. Central to this book are 34 stunning black-and-white prints accompanied by Merton's own writings. Opening and closing chapters study their significance in Merton's personal journey, the turbulence of the times and his wide circle of friends, such as the philosopher Maritain, the poet Milosz and the Zen scholar Suzuki. B&W photos. Hardcover, 197 pages. 8 1/2" X 9"

"This astonishing book looks at an aspect of Merton's life that has been almost ignored."
– Sr. Wendy Beckett
