Color your way through intricately detailed labyrinths to discover the spiritual richness within. As you color, you will reveal prayers and verses hidden in the Celtic patterns. Acclaimed artist Daniel Mitsui draws on such medieval manuscripts as the Book of Kells
to create thirty original coloring pages that will help you contemplate your faith and grow closer to Christ.
In his third and most ambitious adult coloring book, Mitsui creates illustrations inspired by medieval manuscripts such as the Book of Kells
and the Lindisfarne Gospels
. This Celtic style is characterized by intricate knot or spiral decorations and highly stylized calligraphy. Also fascinated by the tile labyrinths decorating the floors of medieval churches, Mitsui combines these two popular genres into beautifully detailed coloring pages. Christian Labyrinths
features three types of artwork, each offering a unique meditative experience:
- Labyrinths pages portray Biblical scenes surrounded and connected by paths made up of interconnected knots and spirals.
- "Carpet" pages feature richly detailed patterns forming traditional Christian shapes.
- Cryptogram pages contain hidden messages in the design that are revealed when color fills them.
Following the practice of great monastic scribe Eadfrith of Lindisfarne, Mitsui has included a single, small, deliberate mistake on each page of the book, providing an extra level of challenge and interest to coloring enthusiasts.Author:
