The Celtic Design Book

by Aidan Meehan - £12.95  Thames and Hudson (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780500286746 | ISBN 10: 0500286744

This bumper edition of Aidan Meehanís guides to the art and design of the Celts brings together three of his bestselling titles, A Beginnerís Manual, Knotwork and Illuminated Letters.
 
Part One presents all the simplest forms of Celtic design with a clear explanation of both freehand and canonical geometric methods, as well as detailed instructions on how to draw and decorate letters in an authentic Celtic style.
 
Part Two examines knotwork and plaitwork in detail against the sacred background from which they sprang.
 
Part Three is a unique blend of history, anecdote and practical instruction that re-creates the schooling of the Celtic illuminator.
