The story Fitzpatrick tells, of the coming of the Tuatha de Danann, their exploits against the Fir Bolg and the great battle of Moy Tura, is of grand proportions.
You can almost close your eyes and see the dreadful clash between the Tuatha de Danann and their foes, the Fir Bolg, the rain of blood brought by Badb over the assembled hosts, the bloody hurling match between the youth of the De Danann and the Miled.
Fitzpatrick has garnered an excellent reputation for his artwork, and this book showcases him at his best. Every page is framed by intricate and colorful knotwork and anthropomorphic designs.
Each chapter begins with an elaborately designed first letter. The book is filled from cover to cover with incredible one- and two-page illustrations which capture the action in heroic detail. The men are all handsome and muscular, the women beautiful and fiery. The helmets, weapons and armour are painted with the kind of ornate frippery the Celts have always been famous for.
Fitzpatrick does a fine job with landscapes and still poses, but he shines most masterfully in the action sequences. Find The Book of Conquests and give it a treasured place in your Celtic collection.
