The images above (many are details) come from three books :



** Early Celtic Designs by I Stead & K Hughes, from the British Museum Pattern Books


** A Treasury of Celtic Design by C Davis.


** Celtic Borders & Motifs by L Davies from Design Source Books.



In a general sense, if anyone wants to follow my admittedly erratic web habits in relation to BibliOdyssey:
Twitter updates are the fastest means of notification; delicious bookmarks [feed] give a summary of each post and it's usually updated soon after the post appears; the blog rss feed appears an hour or so later; email subscription is sloooow: up to a day after the post appears on the site; I usually add a few items of interest to the shared feeds most days and now and then I save bookmarks of bookish/exhibition material to the peacay delicious account [feed] - there is a wealth of interesting material in there.
