Celtic Tales
Celtic Tales: Fairy Tales and Stories of Enchantment from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales | Kate Forrester
14 posts | 4 read | 20 to read
The traditional stories of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales transport us to the fantastical world of Celtic folklore. Translated and transcribed by folklorists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the 16 stories in this compilation conjure forgotten realms and rare magical creatures in vivid prose. These timeless tales brim with wit and magic, and each one is brought to life with elegant silhouette art by Kate Forrester in this special illustrated edition.

@Avanders the rest of the gifts have shown up and they are breathtaking yet again! I absolutely love the journal, the old leather bound feel with blank pages, ah I just love it. And the cup is fantastic, I adore it so much and the book is going to be so much fun to read, I only know a few Celtic tales I can‘t wait to learn more! Thank you so much! #mythsandlegendsswap

Thank you so very much @PatriciaU !!! I was so surprised with all of the goodies! I was expecting a few books, and these are absolutely amazing and the Celtic Tales Book is gorgeous 😍 Kaysen LOVES her Olaf book. She has barely let it go 😊 And of course the WonderWoman shirt is amazing. Thank you for your kindness, we truly appreciate it very much! ❤️

PatriciaU Glad you could use the books! I‘m clearing out some of my bookshelves. Some of these were acquired thru Litsy swaps and have been read and loved. Now it‘s time to pass them on! And Kaysen is adorable! 1mo
BooksTeasAndBookishThings @PatriciaU thank you! They will be loved again ❤️ I don‘t have a single one of these 😊 and thank you, I am biased, but I think so, too 😉 1mo

My Mother-in-law, @Tawnya-T got me this scarf when she visited Ireland a few years ago. It has a beautiful #celtic design woven into it.

I absolutely adored this book! It's a very easy read, a collection of short stories from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales. I brought this book up to the island and my dad read it to us by firelight. We all enjoyed the stories very much!

Enjoyable old-world tales, told in the traditional style. Who doesn't love a good fairy tale?
