This exciting and versatile treasury of copyright-free design offers graphic artists many different types of Celtic motifs in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, all expertly adapted from authentic Celtic design sources by artist Courtney Davis.
Inspired by early examples of jewelry and ornament, illuminated books, manuscripts and other historic artifacts, the designs are both abstract and pictorial, and range from full- and half-page rectangles, triangles, and circles to frames, borders, corners, and medallions.
Many of the designs are extremely rich and complex in character and content. Each is rendered by Courtney Davis with exceptional finesse. Graphic artists will find that wherever the bold and beautiful interlacements of Celtic design are called for, these splendidly conceived and executed motifs will add just the right touch.
