Celtic Designs


#1

Hi Everyone. A couple of weeks ago, someone wrote that he likes
Celtic designs and that he has been using them a lot. He also gave
the link to a book at Amazon. Sorry about this - I have been looking
for this e-mail, but I cannot find it anymore. Does anyone knows
about who I am talking - maybe the author himself, I would love to
discuss Celtic designs? Thank you, Will

I must have missed that one – can’t find anything in my email
folders. I’m sort of interested in Celtic designs, or at least the
knot-like ones, myself.

When I did a search at Amazon for books with Celtic design, there
were only 56 of them, so maybe you could skim the list and recognize
it.

Hi Martha and Will. Here is a link to a site that has Celtic Knot
Fonts, allowing easy transition of text into beautiful knots. Just

Dear Marta, I do quite a lot of Celtic wedding bands. I hope this
summer to put them up on my web site. At the present time the are
available only through a wholesale distributor. One of the best
places I have found for these designs is Dover Books. I’m pretty sure
the web site is www.doverbooks.com or something like that. They also
have CD Roms of Celtic designs is you use a computer. Prices are VERY
reasonable. Do a search on Yahoo and you’ll find them. Amazon is
another good source.
