Synopsis

With this book you will learn how to write the beautiful calligraphy that we associate with Celtic culture, and be taught how to develop scripts that are based on original mediaeval manuscripts into lovely projects to treasure. Starting with the materials you need and basic calligraphy techniques, the book will move on to the development and improvement of skills with design elements, exercises, clear instruction on lettering, using colour, knotwork illustration and illumination, with inspirational examples of Celtic art and lettering. Beginners will find much to help them in this practical guide and more experienced calligraphers will learn much about Celtic influences and the way lettering can be enhanced with stylised knotwork illustration and illumination.



Traditional letterforms can be transformed into unique works of art with an intertwining of colour, art and design. Stylised letterforms are ornament in themselves, but enhanced with knotwork, Celtic swirls and patterns, illumination, colour and design, Celtic calligraphy becomes an exciting art form based in fascinating ancient traditions. This can be taken into the realms of fantasy art, book illustration, crafting, written work - and into tattoo design.

Kerry has had a passion for drawing, painting and calligraphy since childhood and her love for knotworks and ancient Celtic designs emerged in her teenage years. After leaving school she went on to study art and design at South Nottinghamshire College where she was awarded a D.A.T.E.C. Diploma in Art and Design. After leaving college she did various jobs including working in a graphics department and also painting a cartoon series which was later shown on national television. She took a break to bring up her children but always kept her hand in by painting such projects as school murals and also holding calligraphy workshops. It was when her youngest child started school that she embarked on her career as a full time professional artist. She has been a full time artist now for over 20 years and in that time she has practised her craft and has moved on to create her own original knotworkings. She has also spent much time under taking many varied and different types of commissioned work She has exhibited nationally in art shows and museums, during which time her work has reached all corners of the globe. Much time also has been spent on teaching and demonstrating her art form across the U.K. enthusing others to become as involved, excited and passionate about her favourite subject as much as she is, and she hopes to bring this artistic style back to the forefront of fashion - a place where it truly belongs. Kerry lives in Nottinghamshire. http://homepage.ntlworld.com/kerry.richardson/
