PUBLISHER'S NOTE
In this marvelous collection, drawn from numerous Celtic and Old Norse
sources in the British lsles and Scandinavia, a rich selection of traditional
Christian and secular designs is brought together. Some of the meticulously rendered designs were found in iIluminated manuscripts, missals,
and psalters of the Celtic Church (including the incomparable Book of
Kells and the earlier Book of Ourrow) and on Celtic stone crosses. Others
are from runic inscriptionson
stones, Norse sword hilts and personal
ornaments, and the decoration of everyday artifacts such as bedposts,
horse collars, and weather vanes. The sources of the designs are in lreland;
Scotland; Wales; Cornwall, Cumbria, Gloucestershire, Northumberland,
Sutton Hoo (in Suffolk), and the lsle of Man in England; Denmark;
Norway; and Sweden.
Created in the period from the 6th century to the 12th century A.D.
(some of them during the 9th and 10th centuries, at the height of the Norse
invasions and occupations of large areas of England and lreland), the
designs represent the six major periods of Old Norse decoration: the
Broa/Oseberg, Borre, Jellinge, Mammen, Ringerike, and Urnes styles, as
well as many generations of Celtic Christian ornament, chiefly elabora ted
in lreland and Scotland.
