This painting is on the wall outside the catalogue room on the 3rd floor — I apologize for not having the proper credits for it, and for the fact that it’s out of focus.

I forgot it was of a monk working on an illuminated manuscript. I can tie this painting in to something the characters later experience on Lindisfarne, the Holy Island off the coast of Northumbria where the illuminated manuscripts were prepared.

You know how much I love Lindisfarne — of course I’d have to set a chunk of the book there!

  1. More accurate to say Lindisfarne is off the coast of Northumberland – Northumbria is the tourist term for the North East in general.
