A Complete Guide to Heraldry
Thanks to the always-fascinating Project Gutenberg, I found this digital version of an old book by Arthur Charlies Fox-Davies and illustrator Graham Johnston. It was published in 1909 in Scotland. Everything you ever wanted to know about heraldry - more than you ever wanted to know, I'm sure - is here. The real treat is a ton of illustrations of various pieces of heraldric devices. Creative types might enjoy cutting and pasting their own coat of arms together, if you're not happy with yours. Personally, I like mine so I'll leave it alone. At any rate, there's much to explore in this interesting book (not to mention Project Gutenberg in general).
