Exploring the Celtic art of decorative lettering, this book reproduces the letters of the Celtic alphabet from original sources. Letters not used by the Celtic scribes have been drawn with meticulous care to correspond to Celtic models. In addition to the decorative capitals, letters are drawn in a modern Celtic style, both upper and lower case, making this a practical book for those who want to try out their own Celtic hand, as well as a beautiful gift book.
