With great skill and flair, Dutch artist Co. Spinhoven has translated the stirring imagery of traditional Celtic art into a collection of 130 exciting and versatile stencil designs. With them, graphic artists and craftspeople can bring to their work the distinctive beauty and drama of a great decorative arts tradition. The designs, all copyright-free, are derived from the Book of Kells and other early medieval Celtic sources. Their themes range from birds and beasts of myth and scripture to elegantly wrought abstract motifs.
