I bought this book as a present for a friend and took a sneak look before wrapping it up. I was most impressed by the layout, photographs, and text. The overall quality of the book was beautiful and would be an excellent addition to any coffee table collection. I understand my friend is delighted with the book too!

I could not put this book down due to the accessible writing style, plenty of detail but not overwhelming. Each chapter has a clear focus and reads like a detective story. As I had already planned to visit the Durham exhibition this summer I will now have a much greater appreciation of the world of Cuthbert and those who wrote, illuminated and bound this fabulous treasure.
