In the tradition of the Book of Kells, Celtic artist Kevin Dillon has rediscovered the same mediaeval techniques used by these monks. Using a mortar & pestle, Kevin crushes semi-precious stones - lapis lazuli, cinnabar, azurite, orpiment and malachite to make his own paints. Using a dip pen or goose quill the letters are meticulously applied by hand to the calf skin vellum. One at a time the colors are applied - first blue, followed by the reds, then each remaining color in turn. The final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. The artist’s seal, a stylized design of his initials, is imprinted into molten, charred wax at the bottom of each piece making every print a unique piece of artwork to treasure for years to come.
