Description

A deluxe volume of 16 Celtic folk tales sure to impress any fan of cultural and mythological literature with impactful and stunning illustrations by contemporary artist Kate Forrester.

Perilous quests, true love, and animals that talk. The traditional stories of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales collected in this extraordinary volume conjure forgotten realms and rare magical creatures in vivid prose, transporting us to the fantastical world of Celtic folklore. These timeless tales brim with wit and magic, and each one is brought to life with elegant silhouette art in this special illustrated edition.

"It's an absorbing introduction to the lore of Albion, but readers will also enjoy teasing out similarities between these tales and more familiar ones."--Publishers Weekly

ENCHANTING COLLECTION: Translated and transcribed by folklorists in the late 19th and 20th centuries, the 16 stories collected in Celtic Tales are grouped into four themes: Tricksters, The Sea, Quests, and Romance. Discover delightfully entertaining tales such as Master and Man, The Soul Cages, The Red-Etin, and The Witch of Lok Island.

BEAUTIFUL GIFT: With its bold hardcover design, a satin ribbon page marker, and a striking full-page illustration for each story, Celtic Tales makes an impressive gift. Perfect for fans of fairy tales, ghost stories, Greek mythology, Roman mythology, Chinese mythology, Celtic mythology, and folklore and cultural studies from around the globe.

READERS LOVE IT: With hundreds of 5-star ratings, reviewers rave that this "absolutely beautiful" book is one that "will stand out on your shelf."

  • Fans of other titles in the popular Tales series, including Ghostly Tales, Nordic Tales, Tales of Japan, Tales of India, and Tales of East Africa
  • Anyone who enjoys timeless stories, from the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm to Egyptian mythology to Greek classics
  • Collectors of illustrated classics or artfully designed books
