During the last three months, over 225 new entries have been added to the Book of Traceable Heraldic Art, bringing the total to 4,800 images plus appendices.
Some of these illustrations were provided by first-time contributors Drystan ap Ercwlff, Elizabeth Riverwood, Groza Novgorodskaia, Kolosvari Arpadne Julia, Ragna stórráða Úlfsdóttir, and Sadhbh Bheag — thank you all, and welcome to the team.
Likewise, my continuing appreciation goes out to returning artists Saewynn aet Cnolle, Jessimond of Emerickeskepe, Iago ab Adam, Vémundr Syvursson, Forveleth Dunde, Owen Tegg, Thora Brandsdottir, Aine ingen Gilla Crist, and Estelle de la Mer.
We continue to explore additional period sources; new documents in this update are BnF MS Allemand 304, English Arms A, The Chronicle of the Council of Constance, and the Powell Roll, joining art from familiar works like the Wappenbuch der Arlberg-Bruderschaft, Stemmario Trivulziano, Sammelband Mehrerer Wappenbücher, and the Nobiliario de Armas de Valencia, Aragón y Cataluña.
