Here George Otto Simms, a world-renowned authority on the Book of Kells, reveals the mysteries hidden in this magnificent manuscript. He introduces the monks who made the book and guides the reader through the intricate detail of this ancient and exotic book.» It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination.

The illustrations and ornamentation of the Book of Kells surpass that of other Insular Gospel books in extravagance and complexity.
