Why have Celtic symbols and images become one of today's most vibrant sources of inspiration to artists, designers, and other lovers of beauty? Every page features powerful works by the peoples of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, or the Isle of Man. Some go back to the early warrior and fertility cultures; others concentrate on the Christian era. Still others display the modern continuation of this glorious tradition. The insightful text puts these artworks in context and explores their relevance for us today. 128 pages, 28 color illus., 29 b/w illus., 7 1/2 x 9 1/2.
