Product Description

From the Author

Designed to be a light, colourful and informative guide
As the author and illustrator of this work, my aim was to present the complicated 'science' of heraldry in a colourful, easily understood way. Coats of Arms whilst not being a heavyweight scholastic work, does contain the essence of this vast, complicated and romantic subject. Unfortunately I could have put much more in but in the end we compromised. The result is a highly colourful guide and I hope that the book gives as much pleasure as I had producing the text and the illustrations. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
Beautiful book with all illustrations in colour. I don't know how they produced it for the price. All the elements of heraldry are included along with chapters devoted to church heraldry, guilds,royalty ,cities and scottish heraldry .
It explains ,in detail,with illustrations how to blazon a coat of arms which I found particularly interesting - this is clearly set out in front of you with the full achievement on one page marked with identifying arrows , and clear pictures and text illustrating the process of blazoning on the opposite page. Anyone like me who has found it difficult to follow verbal instructions on blazoning will grasp how to do it instantly. Worth buying for this alone.

A wonderful beginner's book on the subject, simply bursting with colour and excitement, as well as being fairly informative. perhaps a bigger book with more detail would have been a bonus and worth whatever added price this might has warranted. However, as a superficial introduction it does well to wet the appetite for more.
