Description
Well known for his beautifully hand-drawn and -lettered books on calligraphy and Celtic knotwork design, Aidan Meehan here explores their hypnotic labyrinthine forms. The versatile power of these ornamental designs, and hence their use as a source of inspiration for designers and craftspeople of all kinds, is revealed in Meehan's illustrated step-by-step guide to re-creating them. Celtic mazes belong to an ancient class of spiral ornament that Celtic artists of the early Middle Ages developed with singular ingenuity and virtuosity. These patterns can even be drawn freehand following Meehan's method—a technique used by the ancient masters, which he has deciphered and presented here to be practiced anew.
