Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available at a new low price! Intricate, richly colored, and full of symbolism, Celtic art has inspired painters, woodworkers, needleworkers, and other craftspeople for centuries. These exquisite designs--including 50 superb color plates--will continue the tradition, stimulating creativity among professionals and amateurs alike. Chosen by Courtney Davis, one of the most acclaimed Celtic artists working today, the designs include knotwork borders, key patterns, spirals, zoomorphic figures, crosses, and ornamental initials suitable for calligraphers. Some are classic; others are modern but steeped in Celtic style, including one album cover. In addition, Davis provides background throughout, incorporating legends and prayers, and explaining the symbols' meaning and origins, so that artists will have a greater understanding and appreciation of the glories of Celtic culture.

Synopsis:

Brilliant collection includes 50 color-rich pages of beautiful spirals, knots, designs, initials and sketches—perfect for you to trace, copy and use for jewelry, carvings, invitations, announcements. Bonus: stirring Celtic myths!
