Book of Kells, $12.99 --> FREE!

Not a game, but a gorgeously illustrated original illuminated manuscript. iPad only, but for those who can use this, it's worth the download! Serious scholars rejoice.

Free for me right now in the USA, but I see that the change back to normal price has already been "ordered" for the evening of March 17th, so probably not free for too much longer.

Thanks D, just watched the animated movie on Netflix today. What a great St Pat's gift.

Downloaded. I've got a tattoo taken from one of the pages of the Book of Kells, so I should probably have a copy on my ipad. Now I can explain it.

I've downloaded too, thanks for that! I should have missed it.

I'm a great fan of ancient books, especially this one, made with so much attention. The app is well done, we can zoom in featured pages, and all the book is scanned and readable!

It looks like (a bit) the codex seraphinianus, a book from the seventies, written in a unique language, very visual too.

Sorry for my bad english.
