The Book of Kells is the most famous hand-coloured book in the world.
Here’s your chance to colour some of the drawings as the monks did over a thousand years ago. Choose from over sixty drawings of heavenly figures, Biblical people, fantastic creatures, floral, animal and bird motifs, intricate Celtic letters, spirals and designs – and create your own treasures and pull-out poster.
You can also colour pictures of the monks themselves making the wonderful Book of Kells in their time, using the tools and materials of their day.
