Book Description
The Marvels of Celtic design are not just a beautiful accident. They depend both on understand how to create ornament and pattern, and on knowing how to devise a composition a dazzling arrangement which is even more striking than its individual components. Here you can find the key to these remarkable designs. Jack Mackinder has divided his book into two parts. Firstly, he explains how the pages of the book of kells, the book of Durrow and the other great Gospel manuscripts of the 7th to 9th centuries were set out by the ancient scribes. The author has re-created the precise geometries methods they used, explaining how you can apply these strategies to your own work. Secondly, he shows how to draw step patterns, key patterns, interlace and spirals to fit into the shapers created in the manuscripts.
