The Treasury of Celtic Knots

Author(s): Aidan Meehan

Fine Art

This comprehensive survey of Celtic knot design is based on the canon of traditional knot patterns collected by the father of the 19th-century Celtic Art revival, John Romilly Allen, and is accompanied by the author's unique triple-grid analyses. The author has made each pattern intelligible with step-by-step instructions showing the primary, secondary and tertiary dot grids and each design has been completed, unlike the originals. While Knotwork in the Celtic Design series was the perfect introduction to the subject and Celtic Knots: Mastering the Traditional Patterns enabled the reader to master each stage step by step, this book is a chief source of knot designs and shows the authentic methods used by the scribes for the first time, thus unveiling a great variety of different and more elaborate ornaments.
