The dazzling artistry and consummate craftsmanship of the Celts has provided us with some of the finest treasures of the ancient world. In this glorious book, Celtic art and ornament--from intricate jewelry to illuminated manuscripts--fire the imagination of a superbly talented designer. Finding in needlepoint the perfect medium for exploring the elaborate detail and delicate fluidity of Celtic art, Alice Starmore has produced a magnificent collection of original designs. Stonework, interlacing key patterns, knotwork, spirals, and plant and animal forms all provide fertile ground for exquisite needlepoint creations worked in rich, glowing colors. Designs range from cushions and belts to a bookmark, rug, stool cover, and chair seat. There are detailed instructions and easy-to-follow charts, and a conversion chart offers a further selection of yarns. There is also a comprehensive lesson in all the basic needlepoint techniques. Featuring100 color photos, this is a book to inspire and delight all needleworkers. Alice Starmore is a prominent knitwear designer and author; among her books are The Celtic Collection and Fishermen's Sweaters.
