We’d like to tell you about an exciting new book!
- by David James and Vitor González
This is our new book that we are justifiably very pleased with. Our intention is to present Celtic designs and their construction in an uncomplicated manner, and in carefully laid out sequences, so that anyone with little or no knowledge of the way they are created can, with a small amount of patience, make their own beautiful Celtic designs.
There are individual chapters dedicated to knotwork, spirals, key patterns, animals and beasts, and lettering, all the designs in each section having easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. The designs are graded in terms of ease of construction, so that you can progress from basic to more elaborate and ornate ones.
Shown here are some of the beautiful full-page colour designs in the book, painted by Vitor González, a highly talented artist from Asturia, the Celtic region of northern Spain.
The introduction by David James comprises a historical overview of the Celts from their earliest known beginnings, and contains some wonderful colour pictures of ancient artefacts and stone carvings.
The designs shown in the book, with their step-by-step instructions, are suitable for application to a multitude of crafts, and are also ideal for school art projects from primary classes to GCSE art courses, as well as enthusiasts of all ages worldwide who have a fascination with Celtic art.
This new book is published by David and Charles. It can be ordered now at www.amazon.co.uk or www.amazon.com who will post copies worldwide. Price is UK £9:99, US $16:99.
