Decorate your own elaborate bookmark with designs from centuries-old Irish illuminated manuscripts.

Take inspiration from Irish illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells, widely regarded as Ireland’s finest national treasure, to create your own beautiful bookmark.  

Use stamps and craft materials to create intricate symbols and designs, then take your bookmark home to use with your favourite book.
