Most beautiful book
The medieval chronicler Giraldus Cambrensis said of it, "you might believe it was the work of an angel," while the art critic MD Hoffman called it "the most beautiful book in the world". The Book of Kells is a lavishly illuminated Latin manuscript from the 8th century, and one of Ireland's foremost national treasures. Its painstakingly intricate decoration is so elaborate that the text itself is often all-but illegible. The book (or books, as it's split into four volumes) is on display at Trinity College Library in Dublin.
