A complete course in the construction and development of Celtic ornament with over 700 illustrations. A Handbook of Celtic Ornament takes basic symbols or ideographs and develops them into a systemized method of construction for most forms of Celtic decoration. Apart from its value as a drawing textbook, this book will be of immense value to all students of arts and crafts. The Merne method for the construction and development of Celtic ornament has not been surpassed and this book is a challenge both to the student and to the professional artist to take part of the Irish tradition and make it their own, to use, to repeat, but most of all to develop.
