This is a highly enjoyable tour through the pages of a masterpiece of early medieval art. Full-color images of all the important decorative pages are included, described, and compared with other contemporary manuscripts and works of art. The history of the book and the fascinating characters who brought it to life are also memorably evoked. ( )

Even though this is a small format book, it is amazingly full of information and color plates of the lindisfarne gospels. Janet Backhouse is a writer who is easy to understand and learn from. ( )
