Hi, Derryl....There is a really good book called HOW TO DRAW CELTIC
KNOTWORK by Andy Sloss. He's written others too but this is the one you
want to get. I think I've got just about all the books on the
subject...wellll...pretty much a ton of 'em anyway...and this is the best
by far.

Also...Barnes and Noble are now having a 1/2 price sale on all their 1999
calendars and they have some of Ireland you can use for good visuals.
Soooo....when you check out Andy's book, look for the calendars too.
