28 of 28 people found the following review helpful Quite Possibly The Ultimate!, September 9, 2007 By C. L. Henson "I'd rather
be....Insane Diego"
   This review is from: Great Book of Celtic Patterns: The Ultimate Design Sourcebook for Artists and Crafters (Paperback) Lora
S. Irish is a talented designed and author. She has the ability to make the complicated simple and accessible for we less
talented masses. This book may actually be THE ultimate design source for celtic knots, as least for the
novice/beginner.Well-laid out, Irish offers background, history and origins of the Celtic Knot and a nice gallery of various media
illustrating use of the Knot. She shows us simply how to understand the patterns and how they flow, including a great beginners
lesson on plotting and graphing Knots, as well as layouts. I like her use of colored pencils to illustrate shadow and depth, and in
so doing she gave us a little primer of their use, too.You will not be disappointed in adding this book as a design source to your
library, whether you are a gourd artist, woodburner, painter or just like to doodle.

This review is from: Great Book of Celtic Patterns: The Ultimate Design Sourcebook for Artists and Crafters (Paperback) This
book is so fantastic, I could hardly put it down. I have used some of the images to do needle felting. This an ultimate
sourcebook. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in Celtic Art.

Worth its weight in gold!, May 24, 2008 By Anna M. Towns
  This review is from: Great Book of Celtic Patterns: The Ultimate Design Sourcebook for Artists and Crafters (Paperback) I
gave this book as a gift to an artist-friend, who loves it so much, he takes it and a sketchpad everywhere. I wish all my gifts were
as well-received!
