Illustrated throughout in colour (with text) by the artist: introduction by Andrew M. Greeley. Uncommon.
''self-taught Irish artist and illustrator, mainly of Celtic mythology. He works in a strong outline with some linear modelling, coloured with transparent and opaque watercolour; his pages are richly embellished in the manner of medieval Celtic manuscript decoration. He worked in advertising before producing and publishing a series of drawings entitled Celtia (graph coll 1974); one of these, ''Morrigan'', was purchased by the Victoria & Albert Museum. This success led to the publication of these drawings in book form along with further pieces under the title Jim Fitzpatrick: Celtia (graph coll 1975), which in turn led to the creation of his three-volume illustrated retelling of the folktales, myths and battle sagas of the Tuatha Dé Danann: The Book of Conquests (graph 1978 UK), The Silver Arm (graph 1981 UK) and Son of the Sun (graph 1987).''
