Eagles bite capitals; foxes chase hares through thickets of letters; embracing men and women begin paragraphs; snakes, winding around themselves, grimly fasten on their own tails to form a looping initial. Famously, the Book of Kells intertwines art and writing as inextricably as can be imagined. Upstairs in Trinity College Library’s august Long Room, a new exhibition, Writing Art in Ireland: c.1890-1930 (with online version available), showcases how in more recent times art and writing continue to intertwine.
