The pioneering work of John Romilly Alien, more than a century ago, Inspired generations of Celtic artists. But until now his definitive collection of the surviving repertoire of Celtic knots from authentic sources has only been available in an obscure academic journal. In "Celtic Knots Mastering the Traditional Tatterns" famed Celtic artist Aidan Meehan explained the basics of knotwork in a programmed course, using one knot - the simplest -as a building block. Now he not only presents all the knots as Romilly Alien found them, but finishes the figures he provided, so that they are no Longer clipped out of context, with loose ends, but developed into whole new ornaments, shown in two colours and in a variety of treatments. For the first time, and for the widest of audiences, Aldan Meehans "Treasury" establishes these designs as a common inheritance, the marvellously decorative and versatile surviving canon of Celtic knots. After discovering the triple - grid method of Celtic knot design in 1974, Aldan Meehan has been researching and practising Celtic knot design ever since.
