The Lindisfarne Gospels is an illuminated manuscript dating from around 700AD. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to inlay one of its pages on the back of a guitar. This is a Kevin Ryan instrument, with back and sides of holly. The project took two and a half years of continual work, from start to finish. To read more, here's a link to the blog I posted at the time.
