Aidan Meehan has selected details of his line drawings from his best-selling Celtic Design series, and has redrawn and elaborated them especially for this larger format pattern book. All the main branches of the wonderful and intricate traditional Celtic ornament are represented: spirals, geometric step and maze patterns, animal and plant patterns, and knotwork. In ancient times, several artists would work together to decorate an important book, one drawing in pen and ink, another painting in the patterns. Here the reader is invited to fulfill the role of painter, while being guided and inspired with notes on the history of the designs and on the choice and order of colors. This repertoire of Celtic designs, created by one of the leading proponents of the genre, is based on traditional sources, such as the Book of Kells and Pictish carved stonework. It is a creative and engaging introduction to Celtic art, and makes an ideal gift for anyone fascinated by the Celtic legacy. It will be of great value to artists, designers, and crafts people interested in experimenting with new patterns and techniques.
