Embracing Change: Spirituality and the Lindisfarne Gospels by Ewan Clayton.
Photography by Robert Cooper.

In this unusual book, a practicing calligrapher meditates on the creative wellsprings that inspired and motivated one of the world’s great scribes – Eadfrith – who wrote and decorated the Lindisfarne Gospels to honour God and in memory of St. Cuthbert, a man with a genius for healing and reconciliation.

Ewan Clayton is an award winnning calligrapher, teacher and writer. He grew up in the village of Ditchling, Sussex, where his family worked as weavers in the Guild of craftsmen on Ditchling Common founded by Eric Gill and the printer Hilary Pepler in 1921. Ewan was also a member of the Guild before it closed in 1988. 

Ewan Clayton is Professor in Design at the University of Sunderland and co-director of the International Research Centre for Calligraphy.
