Indeed a very rare collection seen in vector format. The Illuminated Letters from the 8th Century Book of Kells, is an attractive series that features the full alphabet.

---------------------

The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was transcribed by Celtic monks in the 8th century. It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. It is also widely regarded as Ireland's finest national treasure.

The illustrations and ornamentation of the Book of Kells surpass that of other Insular Gospels in extravagance and complexity.
