Very fine little book, which does perfectly what it tries to do: stimulate the reader to explore further into the labyrinth of Lindisfarne. ( )

Wonderful placement of the book within its time period, history and in conjunction with other art. Brown obviously knows her business. This is the book that has convinced me that I buy just about anything with Michelle Brown's name on it.

There was an in depth discussion of the production techniques involved and the process behind the Lindisfarne gospels, not just another recounting of the same 3 or 4 tired and redundant manuscript pictures that are the ones you see from the gospels every time they are mentioned.

She has the chops, and the expertise and knows what she is talking about and it shows throughout this book.; in fact, it's probably time for a re-read since this was one of the first illumination books I read and I will now probably get even more out of her writing! ( )
