B3912. The Book of Kells / Meehan
B3912. The Book of Kells by Bernard Meehan. 2013. 256pp. 10x12.87 Hardcover with a slipcase.

The manuscript has been newly photographed and this book provides a clarity far surpassing earlier reproductions. You can marvel at the extraordinarily inventive and intricate imagery that accompanies the texts of the four Gospels: full-page depictions of Evangelists and their symbols, lavish honorific openings to the Gospels, extraordinary initials, and decoration that combines complex interlace, animals, and human figures. This volume features more than fifty full-size reproductions of complete pages plus enlarged details. Supplementary images place the manuscript in its setting and provide comparisons for its iconography and style.

The rich illustrations are paired with an exploration of the manuscript’s historical background, an examination of earlier and comparable manuscripts, a detailed discussion of symbols and themes, and a look at the scribes and artists who worked on the manuscript and their techniques, illuminated by recent scientific research.

B3916. The Art of Pop-Up / Trebbi
B3916. The Art of Pop Up: The Magical World of Three-Dimensional Books by Jean-Charles Trebbi. 2012. 160pp. 8.75x9.75. Hardcover

Definitely not your usual pop-up book. It’s not filled with instructions and diagrams and there are no pop-ups. Instead you are treated with a delightfully illustrated history of moveable and three-dimensional structures in books and cards. You discover examples from Renaissance books, more from the 19th century and the early-to-mid 20th century, and then experience the visual avalanche that follows. It is a refreshing perspective. In addition to American’s such as Robert Sabuta and Carol Barton, we are introduced to artists from Europe and Asia and their innovative work. If you make pop-ups or have a shelf full of pop-up books, it’s a fascinating find.
