Celtic Design : A Beginner's Manual
Aidan Meehan / Paperback / Published 1991
Of all Meehan's books published in the past ten years - over a dozen similar volumes, of which this was only the second - this one remains one of the most popular. It was written as a companion to the first volume, which covers all the other forms of Celtic Design in equal depth and with comparable style, except knotwork, which obviously required a volume all to itself, namely, "Celtic Design: Knotwork, the Secret Method of the Scribes". - Aidan Meehan (aidan@celtic-art-coracle.net)

Celtic Design : Knotwork : The Secret Method of the Scribes
