Publisher Comments:

Containing numerous project patterns, this unique resource offers beautiful step-by-step sequences and inspirational artwork samples that illustrate numerous styles of Celtic alphabets. With 11 alphabetic fonts, each project is marvelously versatile—from greeting cards and calligraphy to home décor and personalized monogramming. Included among the variety of expressive designs are block alphabets embellished with leaves, lions, birds, and dogs as well as decorative swashes, internal tracings, and figurative Celtic knots. In addition to alphabets, supplemental projects, both modern and traditional, cover an array of motifs of foliage, animals, and avian subjects, as well as instruction for intricate borders and numerals.
