Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Celtic scribes of the sixth to ninth centuries, whose intelligence and artistry we admire today in their sacred manuscripts, worked from instructions and master-copies, handed down from generation to generation. In this authoritative reference manual, the sources and symbolism of their ornament are made accessible. From elucidation of the pages of the Cathach of St. Columba to the Celtic animal alphabet, this unique blend of history, anecdote and practical instruction recreates the schooling of the Celtic illuminator.

Synopsis:

From the Celtic Design series: a reference manual on Celtic illuminated letters, blending history and anecdote with practical instruction.

Synopsis:

The step-by-step instructions provide an invaluable resource for artists, designers, and craftspeople--a unique blend of history, anecdote, and practical instruction that recreates the schooling of the Celtic illuminator.

Synopsis:

Over 200 illustrations complement this beautiful introduction to the art of Celtic illumination.
