A New Book With Lots of Heraldry
Disclaimer: I have no relationship with, or financial interest in, this book or its publishers. I just thought it was a really neat new book, and that I should let my readers know about it. We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog post.
I ran across an announcement the other day about a new book on heraldry: A Celebration Of Scottish Heraldry, compiled by Martin Goldstraw and John Duncan of Sketraw.
This book has been published in celebration of the 340th anniversary of the Lyon King of Arms Act of 1672, and consists of "227 pages containing 82 Letters Patent and over 233 other images, most of which have never been seen by the general public before," and illustrates "the many practical ways in which Scottish Armigers of today enjoy and demonstrate their personal armorial bearings."
At £65.00, plus shipping and packaging, it may not be for everyone, but it looks to be a great celebration of heraldry in general and Scottish heraldry in particular, and certainly ought to be of interest to any student of heraldry and the heraldic arts.
For more information about this book, see some of the pictures that it includes, or order a copy if your budget will withstand the blow, stop by the website of The Armorial Register at http://www.armorial-register.com/celebration-heraldry.html
