Celtic Pattern and Design Books

Below are some of the top selling Celtic design and pattern books I have found and in association with Amazon I can now offer them to you at the low prices only they can afford to offer.

Most of these books have been great resources to both Al and myself over the years in his carvings as well as my pyrography and gourds.

You might also want to experiment with the Celtic Knot Font software available from Clanbadge. I created the wood burning on the right many years ago using this software. It's fun and easy and you can create your own original designs in minutes.  

I want to make buying books easy and give you the opportunity to save more money too, and these items can be purchased with a credit card. 

So now you can shop with us and save even more money!

Amazon.com offers an extensive selection and great prices, including books both new and used. Free shipping is usually available with a $35 purchase or your Prime Membership, and other discounts are often available.
