Lettres celtiques / Celtic letters, 2013, 2017
Celtic letters, or better said insular letters, are among the finest achievements of illumination in Northern Europe. Decorated with spirals, triskels, interlacings, labyrinths and animal motifs, they appear to be remarkably originals.
This book offers a selection of 160 ornate letters extracted from various manuscripts kept in the most prestigious European libraries. In this book, the art lovers, illuminators and calligraphers will find many historical references, as well as an introduction to illumination technique.
