I've had an ongoing fascination with the Book of Kells ever since I was old enough to understand what it was. This is a very brief, but incredibly thorough, overview. Meehan does an excellent job of using images culled from the text to highlight the examples of the different symbols and artwork he mentions. I felt like I was standing next to the Book, listening to my very own tour guide.
