A Novel Idea, or, It's Art, But Is It Heraldry, Part Two

As part of a "One Hundred Days to Make Me a Better Person" project, blogger and freelance illustrator Angela Fernihough is doing a series entitled "One Hundred Days of Coffee".  Her entry for Day 98 (which can be found on-line at is a "coat of arms" with a coffee press, a rising (I presume; I've been known to be wrong once or twice in my life) sun, three coffee beans, and a per pale wavy line of division that could symbolize coffee, coffee creamer, and/or the steam rising from a good hot cup of the brew.  (Me, I don't know.  I know it makes me an oddity, but I've never developed a taste for coffee.  Some of you might consider this to be a failing on my part.  Oh, well.)

Anyway, I thought it was certainly a novel idea, although clearly not adhering very strictly to the usual forms, tinctures, and customs of heraldry.

  1. seems to go with heraldry to not have a taste for coffee because I do not like coffee either ;)
