This is a 21st- century Book of Kells that brings together the work of more than 150 poets, visual artists, and calligraphers. Scotland and Ireland share a mythology, a rich music tradition, languages and some history. Irish Gaels, known as Scoti, invaded Scotland in the 5th century and gave it their name. "An Leabhar Mor" is a major artwork which renews the connection between Gaelic Scotland and Ireland and celebrates the diverse strands of contemporary Celtic culture. A beautiful book featuring work from every century between the sixth and the twenty-first - contains the earliest Gaelic poetry in existence. One hundred visual artists respond to the poetry in a variety of media. It includes work by poets Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill and Maire Mhac an tSaoi and by artists Allan Davie, Will Maclean and Rita Duffy among others.
