Patterns of fascinating intricacy are the legacy of ancient Celtic artists, who intertwined the beauty of the natural world with the mystery of the spiritual world, as it was then perceived. In these designs, fantastic men, beasts, birds and serpents writhe and bite their way through twisting bands of knotwork and swirling spirals, in dazzling, never-ending linear displays. Artists, crafts people, colourists, and all who love pure design will find these pages, inspired by the Celtic tradition, absorbing and challenging for use in stencilling, needlework, calligraphic design and many other applications.
