Yes, but... Feb. 18 2012
By Retta Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Yes, this book is full of absolutely BEAUTIFUL projects! The author is creative and talented. I was in awe of some of these, and admire her work very much. But...

I can't give it 5 stars because it was not made clear before purchase that there were LIMITS as to how you are allowed to use the designs. They are taken from the Book of Kells, which is copyright free. But since she copied her designs FROM the Book of Kells, the publishers of this book are retaining the copyrights to them. So... they say you can only use up to 15 of the designs for one project.

In other words, personal use is okay. But if you are an artist or craftsman who plans to make stuff to sell, nope, don't buy this book, or you could be in violation of their copyright if you make and sell more than 15... if I understand the legal gobbledegook correctly!

But hey, if you are looking for stunning artistic projects for personal use and/or gift giving, then you'll appreciate her work. Truly, it's gorgeous.

Beautiful Work on Book of Kells Aug. 17 2009
By B. Rackley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Large open outlines for any artists to work with, the projects are varied and full of fun. I especially loved the book covers as I love bookbinding and the making of books.
You will too, CD is a great advantage!

Interesting! June 16 2009
By T. Cotham - Published on Amazon.com

Interesting book - lovely photos. I'm a quilter and I don't know that I can really use any of these "illustrations" without making some major adjustments. I'm glad I bought it, though. Inspiring!

Se conhece o livro de Kells vai se surpreender como os desenhos contidos nesse exemplar, se ainda não teve a oportunidade serão páginas de possibilidades infinitas pois é possível combinar designs e chegar a algo bem distinto, quase original.

I love this book because it provides sample color schemes as well as beautiful, clear outlines of designs from the book of Kells. Nice addition to my Celtic design sources.
