Celtic calligraphy crosses the boundaries between art, tradition and craft. With instruction on how to draw letterforms derived from original Celtic manuscripts like the Book of Kells, and with step-by-step explanations of knotwork, borders, motifs and illumination, this book will show you how to transform your writing into unique works of art worthy of the mediaeval Celtic scribes.
‘This prettily presented, clearly laid-out how-to guide on Celtic Calligraphy by Kerry Richardson serves as a non-intimidating introduction to those interested in developing the craft’. The Irish World
Kerry Richardson has had a passion for calligraphy, drawing and painting since childhood, but her love of knotwork did not emerge until her teenage years. She spent her summers living on the west coast of Scotland, where she first discovered ancient Celtic designs. Since then she has practised her craft, developing and creating beautiful original calligraphic designs. She has been a full time artist for over twenty years and has exhibited nationally in art shows and museums, during which time her work has been seen worldwide. Now, she spends her time teaching and demonstrating calligraphy across the UK.
