Over the last three weeks, 77 new illustrations of charges have been added to the Traceable Heraldic Art collection.
I’m pleased to welcome newcomers Thora Brandsdottir, Elionora inghen Ui Cheallaigh, and Lily Morgaine, who each sent in illustrations for the first time. Thanks also Jessimond of Emerickeskepe for her continuing contributions of original art, and to Vémundr Syvursson for converting a handful of beasts from the Zurich Roll to vector format.
There are also a handful of new pages in the Mantling, Helms & Crests appendix; this section is still quite sparse, but I hope to expand it further in the coming months to facilitate the creation of impressive-looking achievement displays. If you’d like to contribute to this effort, I’m looking both for line-art tracings of period elements and for original illustrations.
New headings in this month’s round include the zephyr, gourd, llama, salt barrel, bathtub, and golf club. There are some great uncommon and not-yet-registered charges here waiting for an adventurous submitter!
