Download Celtic and Old Norse Designs (Dover Pictorial Archive by Courtney Davis PDF

By Courtney Davis

I purchased this e-book trying to find concept for a Celtic or Viking tattoo layout. listening to what a respected artist Courtney Davis was once, i presumed i could not get it wrong with this ebook. regrettably, the entire drawings have been enormously unsophisticated and so they take me back to the fact extra of an amateur's paintings (perhaps at copying Courtney Davis). the entire designs have been in black and white and plenty of of them have been simply simple - and that i *do* suggest simple - knotwork styles higher fitted to tablecloths than tattoos. there's not one of the appealing intricacy you discover in genuine Celtic paintings - just about all of the styles have large unfilled or "blackened" spaces.

If you are looking for concept in Celtic layout, purchase a replica of the ebook of Kells. i do know that would positioned the shoddiness of this paintings to mild. i think this used to be only a reasonable test at creating wealth and that Courtney himself doesn't prize this work.

The excellent news is - it is affordable, so it wasn't a complete waste.
