Description


Known as fierce warriors and skilled artisans and crafters, the Celts had established a culture long before the existence of the Roman Empire. Their territory extended from Romania and Hungary westward to France and Spain, eventually including England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland.
This well-researched coloring book documents more than 4,000 years of Celtic fashions. Forty-five ready-to-color illustrations, accompanied by detailed captions, depict a wide variety of apparel and accessories — from cloaks worn by European Celts ca. 2000 B.C. to the elaborately embroidered costume of a twentieth-century Irish step dancer. Here also are careful renderings of Gallic-Celtic warriors in tunics and trousers (100 B.C.), Druids making a sacrificial offering (A.D. 100), and an Irish-Celtic family of the Roman era (A.D. 150), St. Patrick and a converted noblewoman (A.D. 432), and nineteenth-century Irish fisherfolk, among others.
This fascinating collection is sure to be valued by students of costume design, fashion historians, and coloring book fans of all ages.
