Decorative lettering is one of the splendours of Celtic art. With all their love of elaboration and inventive detail, the Celtic calligraphers and carvers never lost contact with the essential form which lends their work its enduring vitality and appeal. This book reproduces the letters of the Celtic Alphabet from original sources. Letters not used by the Celtic scribes have been drawn with meticulous care to correspond to Celtic models.
Letters are also drawn in a modern Celtic style, both upper and lower case, making this a practical book for those who want to try out their own Celtic hand. In addition, a little anthology of traditional Celtic writings and illustrations has been included to give a real sense of the brilliance of Celtic imagery and style.
