Distinguished by its intricate interlacings and elaborate spirals, Celtic art has provided needlecrafters with countless motifs for use in varied projects. This intriguing collection of charted designs by Ina Kliffen incorporates the fascinating shapes of mythical Celtic creatures. Included are forty-three carefully devised color-coded charts depicting a variety of strange and mystifying beasts. Intertwined in the traditional snake-like weaves are eye-catching representations of fabulous fauna that will enhance any needlecrafter's work. Complete instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams enable even beginners to embellish clothing, linens, cushion covers, and other domestic items with a menagerie of eye-catching creations. Ideal for cross-stitch, these unusual designs also work well in needlepoint and other counted-stitch techniques.

What people are saying they don't like in this book is valid: no color photos except the front and back covers and the charts are sometimes ridiculously hard to make out. For many projects, it's hard to picture what the final product will look can tell there's a lot of variation but what colors?~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~12/2/14 REVISION: I just got several books by Courtney Davis including:101 Celtic BeastsThey're all in color!
