The Book of Kells is a medieval illuminated manuscript from around the year 800 AD.

I had the opportunity to see The Book of Kells when I visited Dublin a few years ago. You can now view the fully digitized manuscript of over 600 pages on the Trinity College Dublin library website or get the iPad app. That’s what I’d call a happy St. Patrick’s Day.
