3.0 out of 5 starsDecent novelty, less than impressive quality
Studio Series Calligraphy Paper Pad (set of 50 heavyweight sheets)
Like this coloring book (best with Gel pens due to intricacy of detail (most of the detail anyway) and 2-sided printing. My only complaint is that it is not detailed enough for the serious student. Many of the knotwork patterns have a “yeah whatever” feel to them as if the were done with crosshatch in a hurry to get the thing done.
The knotwork is hard to follow (impossible on some as it is incomplete). I did all my coloring with a side-by-side comparison to the Blance Cirker paperback for accurate color, and some of the knotwork patterns yes were lost to fading but some were not and have that hurried look to them.
Overall though, this is really nice. I’ve included a few examples.

Creative Haven Celtic Designs Coloring Book (Adult Coloring)
Filled with beautiful full-page illustrated manuscripts and Medieval and Renaissance artwork, this is a fun tale of a boy’s trip to a scriptorium.
Great book especially if you’re looking for challenge. A lot of the detail isn’t there but it’s obvious why. Gorgeous pictures and makes you feel a little guilty if your colors are the opposite of the book. Love it!
4.0 out of 5 starsGreat coloring book but some of the detail seems hurried
I love the Book of Kells and have been blessed with the opportunity to see the real book at Trinity College in Dublin. The copies in the coloring book are accurate to the real book and very beautiful. But they are completely impractical for coloring.
The lines are incredibly tiny and I don’t know how to color them and stay in the lines, even with a very sharp pencil. I was pretty disappointed.
The subject matter was nifty, and for the price it’s okay, but the quality was lower than I’d hoped. There are areas with incomplete lines, and other issues. But it was very cheap. I wasn’t *completely* mortified to give it to the history buff for whom I’d ordered it as a gift, but I wouldn’t have purchased it in a shop had I been able to flip through and see the production issues.
If you are buying it for the artwork don’t bother, outlines to big, pictures missing so much from the original artwork, good for people with trouble seeing.
The Bible of Illuminated Letters: A Treasury of Decorative Calligraphy (Quarto Book)
This is somewhat of a substitute since I couldn’t take pictures inside the Trinity Library where the Book of Kells is on display.

I got this book as part of a 4-for-3 offer, and I found it a poor second to Ed Sibbert Jr’s “Celtic Design Coloring Book,” which is also published by Dover. Marty Noble also did Dover’s excellent “Medieval Tapestries Coloring Book,” which I would give 5 stars.
I think he had a very difficult task with the Book of Kells book; the 28 illustrations include many full-size pages, and none of these are printed as a two-page spread, which would have enabled Noble to give clearer definition to the border designs.
In contrast, Sibbett’s book provides 37 illustrations from the Book of Kells and depicts them more clearly as one is on a two-page spread and the others are details (even if some are large details). Seven of the 28 illustrations in the Kells book are substantially the same as in the Sibbett book, and the two books also share another 3 illustrations in common, although the Kells book presents more of the page’s framing details and borders than the earlier Celtic book.
The illustration of St. Matthew is double-page in Sibbett and only a single page in Noble (and the pupil is missing from St. Matthew’s left eye), and most clearly illustrates the difference between the two books.
I am interested in these designs for embroidery and for my purposes, Sibbett is preferable. Those who want to see the effect of a whole page may find Noble’s version is better. I feel Noble’s version suffers from his assignment of presenting larger designs in a smaller space than Sibbett.

This is good, but the small details would make it hard for children, probably under age 12. Good for focusing.
