The entire spectrum of Celtic Art is revealed in this exhaustive and vibrant survey: from the rich treasures found throughout Iron Age Europe; to the flowering of metalwork, sculpture and manuscript illumination during the Dark Ages; to the revivals and "druidomania" that carry the story to the present. The authors show how the diverse traditions and strands of development interweave to create the magnificent works we term Celtic Art. 212 illus., 22 in color.

The entire spectrum of Celtic art, with all its vibrancy, magical power, intricate pattern and ambiguity, is revealed in this splendid, concise introduction. It shows that there was no single unbroken tradition, but several diverse interweaving strands - each exemplified in the many beautiful objects the Celts created, whether decorative or mainly functional: elaborate weaponry, pottery, personal ornaments, enamelled bronze and silver, coins, and (later) illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells. Increasingly influencing artists and designers and attracting a wider public, the rich treasury of Celtic art from the Iron Age to medieval Europe and more recent revivals, is celebrated in this volume.
