Forthcoming book on the Faddan More Psalter

CONSERVATION AND PUBLICATION: ‘It was terrifying’: ancient book’s journey from Irish bog to museum treasure. A new book tells the story of the painstaking process to preserve the 1,200-year-old Faddan More Psalter (Lisa O'Carroll, The Guardian). HT Brent Nongbri at the Variant Readings Blog.

Oddly, nobody links to a page on the book itself. You can find it here on Amazon.

I have corrected the misspelling of the name in the Amazon entry. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to have indexed the book with the incorrect spelling "Fadden." Needs to be fixed. Hopefully it will be by the time you see this.
