Little bigger than a fingernail, Celtic Coins are one of the richest sources of Celtic art in the world, and yet few people are even aware that they exist. With their strange otherworldly designs they evoke a forgotten time of magical beasts, amulets, druids and spirit helpers. In this extraordinary pocket volume, incredibly the first of its kind, Celtic coin artist and researcher Simon Lilly unveils the amazing lost world of early European art hidden in museums and private collections across the planet. With hundreds of original drawings by the author. WOODEN BOOKS are small but packed with information. "Fascinating" FINANCIAL TIMES. "Beautiful" LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS. "Rich and Artful" THE LANCET. "Genuinely mind-expanding" FORTEAN TIMES. "Excellent" NEW SCIENTIST. "Stunning" NEW YORK TIMES. Small books, big ideas.
