Book summary

Drawing her inspiration from the surviving examples of the art of ancient Celtic kingdoms Barbara Hammet has produced a series of stunning reworkings of the classical Celtic swirling shapes and sinuous forms that are at once both modern and timeless. The collection is widely diverse, ranging from a desk set worked in striking black and terracotta to an eye-catching pair of peacocks that would enliven any plain wall and a handsome firescreen whose design is based on the Durrow Circle. There are patterns to suit every level of skill, while the motif library will provide plenty of inspiration for further projects. [via]
