A map of the island of Lindisfarne, also known as 'The Holy Island'. Situated off the coast of Northumberland in the North Sea, Lindisfarne was a highly-important centre of early medieval 'Celtic' Christianity in Anglo-Saxon England, and the bishopric of Saint Cuthbert. This map depicts the medieval castle and priory ruins, and has been embellished with decorations inspired by the beautiful 8th century Lindisfarne Gospels manuscript at the British Library.
Here for sale are fine art prints of my Lindisfarne Map. The original was drawn by hand in 2016, and took two months to draw. I began with a detailed pencil sketch, then used dip-pens with various calligraphy and drawing nibs.
This map makes a fabulous gift for anyone from Northumbria or who has visited The Holy Island.
The map is available rolled (£35) or mounted (£40)
