Designs from the Book of Kells: A Source Book of Designs Specially Adapted for Craftspeople and Artists by Judy Balchin


Taking inspiration from The Book of Kells—an ancient illuminated manuscript that contains the four Gospels of the New Testament and was translated by Celtic monks—this crafter's companion features more than 100 designs that can be easily used and employed by artists. From interlaced patterns and stylized figures to intriguing animals and mythical beasts and birds, this collection will strike a chord with any artist who has an interest in Celtic art or history. An accompanying CD-ROM that features each of the designs, which can be reproduced at any scale, is also included.
