“The Book of Kells.”


The Medieval Celtic “Book of Kells” (597 A.D.)
This magnificent cultural treasure contains a stunning variety of Irish art, designs and calligraphy at its best.
Perhaps the most frequently seen design elements in this book (and in other illuminated Irish manuscripts of the period) are the closely coiled spirals connected with each other by a number of curves and terminating in the so-called “trumpet fractal pattern”.
Similarly convoluted curves and spirals can be found within letters, throughout the book.
