Description

An in-depth study of historic and contemporary usage of heraldry around the world. Includes an illuminating examination of the language and symbolism of heraldry. Richly illustrated throughout, with clear diagrams, stunning photography and exquisite artwork Born on the medieval battlefields and tournament arenas, heraldry has become an international tradition, permeating royal rituals and regalia, the military and countless other institutions. Coats of arms, crests and mottoes have all forged their place in histories around the globe. Covering everything from the Aztecs to the Air Force, mermaids to MI5, and samurai to sewing machines, this is a stunning directory of the heraldic emblems that are as unique as a fingerprint, and are as relevant today as they were to the aristocratic knights in the tourneys and jousts of the great age of chivalry.
