Celtic Decorative Art.
A Living Tradition.
Deborah O Brien
Decorative arts in the Celtic culture are world-renowned
for their beauty, intricacy and depth of meaning. Among
the most famous examples are illustrated manuscripts
such as The Book of Kells. This new book uses many of
the ancient sources as inspiration, but brings a personal,
modern interpretation to the motifs, creating new and
exciting patterns and designs which will both inspire
and encourage readers.
Part One: History of Celtic Art from ancient times
to today. Illustrated with photographs and drawings
of weapons, manuscripts,
silver and gold objects, embroidery and murals.
Part Two: New designs in lavish colour and black & white
inspired by Celtic beliefs, traditions and decorative sources.
Subjects covered include: infinity, love, trees, birds,
fish, animals, water. Describes sources of inspiration,
practical uses and symbolic significance.

for practical application – and suggestions for where
to use them.
