Overview
With this book you will learn how to write the beautiful calligraphy that we associate with Celtic culture, and be taught how to develop scripts that are based on original medieval manuscripts into lovely projects to treasure. Starting with the materials you need and basic calligraphy techniques, the book will move 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.
Traditional letterforms can be transformed into unique works of art with an intertwining of colour, art and design. Stylised letterforms are ornament in themselves, but enhanced with knotwork, Celtic swirls and patterns, illumination, colour and design, Celtic calligraphy becomes an exciting art form based in fascinating ancient traditions. This can be taken into the realms of fantasy art, book illustration, crafting, written work and into tattoo design.
