Heraldry is now. Heraldry is fun. And most of all, heraldry is Canadian! A Canadian Heraldic Primer dispels, once and for all, the myth that coats of arms are boring, snobbish, mediaeval holdovers that have no relevance today.

Using cartoons, humour, and not a little irreverence (in which is concealed a surprising amount of information), Kevin Greaves explains the history behind heraldry's unique conventions and language, and explores its creative possibilities. He shows heraldry as part of the fabric of Canada's past, present, and future, and illustrates how this lively art has become livelier since Canada became master of its own heraldic system in 1988.

About the Author:

Dr. Kevin Greaves, a retired physician living in Hamilton, Ontario, is well known in the Canadian heraldic community.

Gordon Macpherson, retired after a career in the investment field, is a well known and respected heraldic artist. All three are active members of the Heraldry Society of Canada.
