Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very informative book, not only with regards the details of heraldry and, indeed, the quite unique language, but also because of the historical background right up to present-day scope and involvement. There is a tendency to think of heraldry as something of the past, associated with knights in armour and the like, whereas it is, in fact, very much a living thing with a place in the 21st century.

I would have liked to have seen more typical examples and descriptions, but that said, it is a very informative book, and ideal for anyone (like myself) new to the subject.

This is the first book that I have bought by this author, so I do not have the same grumble as the other reviewers.

That having been said, this is a jolly interesting book, reproduced in full colour, and is in hardback. How can you go wrong at this price?

HASH(0xa333b39c) out of 5 stars Packed with Information 11 July 2013
By Michael Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered a couple of books on heraldry, and this is by far the best. It's not all that large, but it's incredibly dense—small print and TONS of illustrations. Great coffee table book; a joy to pick up and thumb through.
