Celtic Calligraphy

Calligraphy, Knotwork and Illumitation
Kerry Richardson

Description

Celtic calligraphy crosses the boundaries between art, tradition and craft. With instruction on how to draw letterforms derived from original Celtic manuscripts like The Book of Kells, and with step-by-step explanations of knotwork borders and motifs plus illumination, this book will show you how to transform your writing into unique works of art worthy of the mediaeval Celtic scribes.

Starting with the materials you need and basic calligraphy techniques, the book moves on to the development and improvement of skills with design elements, exercises, clear instruction on lettering, using colour, knotwork illustration and illumination, with inspirational examples of Celtic art and lettering.

Beginners will find much to help them in this practical guide and more experienced calligraphers will learn much about Celtic influences and the way lettering can be enhanced with stylised knotwork illustration and illumination.
