Book Description

Oct. 1 1998
The Celts were a passionate and ferocious forest people. They rode horses and sat on wolfskins, worshipped pagan gods, and practiced the arts of poetry, prophecy, and astrology. Their art was sacred and symbolic; its interlacing ribbons, knots, mazes, and animal designs still mesmerize the modern world. "Celtic Symbols" invites us to explore this legendary druid society with rubber stamps featuring the intricate circles, knots, and borders of Celtic art. The designs represent the historical range of Celtic art, which was geometric early on and zoomorphic in later centuries. "Celtic Symbols" also includes a booklet by writer Jim Paul that describes the fascinating nuances of Celtic life and society. This inspiring and useful treasure is sure to yield hours of fun and an endless supply of original stamp art creations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deeply Disappointed March 7 2005
I'm just starting to get into creating greeting cards with stamps and this set was deeply disappointing. The quality of the rubber is poor. The images are cut very shallow and ink invariably gets on the rest of the stamp and leaves marks on the printed image. I've tried several brands of ink and markers, all yielding poor results. The wood mounts are thin and do not provide enough gripping surface. Lightly sanding the rubber produced only slightly improved results. It should not be tricky to create a good image with high quality stamps. All in all, very inferior quality compared to the "real" wood block backed rubber stamps used to create greeting cards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful value March 22 2002
These stamps are great. There is a great variety and they are already assembled in a wooden box. They are high quality stamps, that come out very clear but the stamp pad is useless. These are a great value with a very low price.

3.0 out of 5 stars These stamps are ok, but not the best April 1 2001
By A Customer
A little tip for anyone buying these: if the ink doesn't take (ie. it sort of bubbles up on the surface of the rubber), take an emery board and go over the rubber part. Also, don't apply too much pressure as it will leave nasty edge marks. This is because of how they are mounted. I prefer stamps that are cut close to the image and THEN mounted on the wood. These stamps aren't all bad though. I've used them many times with great effect.

1.0 out of 5 stars These are not good stamps! Jan. 23 2001
I know good stamps. I have spent a lot of money on good stamps over the years. These are not good stamps. They do not feel good in your hand. They do not leave good impressions. If you are looking for quality stamps with which to make artwork in all sorts of papercrafts, do not buy these stamps. The accomponying book is cool. But the stamps themselves--yeach. Please trust me and don't waste your money.
