   schema:reviewBody ""More than a century ago, the pioneering work of John Romilly Allen inspired generations of Celtic artists. However, 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 his earlier book, Celtic Knots: Mastering the Traditional Patterns, famed Celtic artist Aidan Meehan explained the basics of knotwork in a step-by-step course, using the simplest knots as building blocks." "Now, in this new book, he presents all the knots as Romilly Allen found them and finishes the figures he provided. The knots are no longer clipped out of context, with loose ends, but developed into whole new ornaments, shown in two colors and in a variety of treatments." "Aidan Meehan's Treasury is the most complete compendium available on these decorative and versatile designs."--BOOK JACKET." ;
