ornaments-of-scandinavicВ данной книге представлены разнообразные и уникальные скандинавские орнаменты.

Сложная и противоречивая история скандинавских народов многие годы является предметом научных споров. Мирные земледельцы, обрабатывавшие плодородные земли в Швеции, Дании и Норвегии, "вдруг" стали грозными воинами, чьи быстроходные корабли наводили ужас на жителей Европы, а затем вновь "остепенились", принялись строить города и возделывать земли. Немало загадок таит искусство неистовых викингов. Удивительно, как воинственные, беспощадные морские разбойники могли достичь таких непревзойденных высот в художественной обработке металлов и дерева.

dragons-and-griffinsAt the end of the eighth century, the Vikings began to plunder the Celtic monasteries, putting an end to the golden age of Celtic art in the Early Christian period. In spite of the invaders' love of looting, fire and the sword, their impact was not simply destructive. In a second golden age that flourished into the high Middle Ages, Irish Dragon and Griffin patterns were wrought in Viking styles, producing a marvelous and distinctive art akin to Art Nouveau and Gothic fantasy.

The author shows how these patterns are formed and gives detailed practical advice on how they can be recreated and adapted by today's artists and designers, or by anyone wishing to enjoy the sheer decorative exuberance of these once fearsome beasts.

treasury-of-celtic-designThis comprehensive survey of Celtic knot design is based on the canon of traditional knot patterns collected by the father of the 19th-century Celtic Art revival, John Romilly Allen, and is accompanied by the author's unique triple-grid analyses.

A step-by-step guide to drawing Celtic knots, the most widely appealing form within the rich repertoire of Celtic design. This comprehensive survey of Celtic knot design is based on the canon of traditional knot patterns collected by the father of the nineteenth-century Celtic Art revival, John Romilly Allen. His work has inspired generations of modern Celtic artists, but until now his definitive collection of knots from authentic sources has only been available in an obscure academic journal.

Aidan Meehan's Treasury is the most complete compendium available on these marvelously decorative and versatile designs. He first presents all the Celtic knots that Romilly Allen discovered, making each pattern intelligible with detailed instructions that show the primary, secondary, and tertiary dot grids, and then finishes the designs that the earlier artist provided. The knots are no longer clipped out of context, with loose ends, but developed into whole new ornaments, shown in two colors and in a variety of treatments.
