This is a step by step guide on the creation of Celtic knotwork, decoration, and geometric patterns. Much more of a hand=holding guide than the Bain book, this is one in a series of texts designed to take the student through the steps the ancient scribes used to create the beautiful illuminated manuscripts we associate with Celtic art. A subsequent work goes deeper into the spirals for which they were famous, but this one provides a great introduction into the simpler patters which can be used to decorate myriad crafts.

Thames and Hudson, 1991
