Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meehan's brilliantly creative study of the great Celtic manuscripts underpins this wonderful collection of 16 alphabets. From sixth-century birds to late medieval Celtic dragons, from early Celtic spirals to the latter Tree of Life, more than 400 drawings cover the whole spectrum of Celtic ornament in its most useful form, as well as the fascinating evolution of the letterforms themselves, from Roman to Irish Gothic. Size D. 96 pp. 7,500 print.

Synopsis:

A study of Celtic manuscripts with a collection of 16 alphabets of decorated letters. Some of the Celtic styles represented are knotwork, animal, spiral, maze and plant and the alphabet of lions from the Book of Kells is recreated.
