About this title

Synopsis:

Discover the fascinating subject of heraldry, a subject as alive today as it was in medieval times. This fascinating and comprehensive introduction is both scholarly written and richly illustrated with stunning full colour photographs and illustrations by the author himself. Discussed are topics such as the origins of heraldry, colours, armorial bearings and ecclesiastical heraldry. A section on modern usage brings heraldry right up to date, while the glossary is simply indispensable.

About the Author:

Stefan Oliver gave up a career in large-scale agricultural management in 1970. Since then he has been working as a self-taught freelance glass engraver and heraldic illustrator and is a member of The Heraldry Society. His work goes all over the world and he exhibits regularly. Also a talented calligrapher, Stefan is based in Stowmarket, Suffolk.
