the American Book of Kells


I discovered at Barnes and Noble yesterday what calls it's self the first hand written Illuminated Bible commissioned since the invention of the printing press! It's absolutely beautiful, this volume contains the the 4 gospels and the book of Acts. You can look inside it on amazon here. They have the pentateuch and the psalms complete as well. I have to get these!

And, I just saw on Libcat that the library has them. Even though Evan's is supposed to suck as far as college libraries go, it's still one of my favorite things about A&M.
