The Lindisfarne Gospels

This lavishly illustrated book explores the early history and significance of the Lindisfarne Gospels, widely regarded as the finest surviving Anglo-Saxon manuscript of the early Christian era in England, and an unquestioned masterpiece of medieval calligraphy and illumination.

The book is written by Professor Richard Gameson of Durham University, the UK's leading expert on early medieval manuscripts and illumination. The publishers have been afforded rare access to the Lindisfarne Gospels by the British Library to enable superb colour reproduction on images of all of the illuminated folios from the manuscript. The volume is published to the highest standards of international fine art publishing.
