Over the last two months, more than a hundred new entries have been added to the Book of Traceable Heraldic Art, putting it on track to pass five thousand charges and fields some time around the end of the calendar year.
I’m pleased to welcome first-time contributors Di Amador and Sneferu ex Artemisias, and extend my thanks to returning artists Saewynn aet Cnolle, Vémundr Syvursson, Iago ab Adam, Jessimond of Emerickeskepe, and Maryan Hoskyns.
If you’ve drawn heraldic line art that you’re willing to share with the community, or would like to find another way of getting involved, please drop me a line!
We continue to collect examples from period and early-modern documents including Le Second Volume de la Premiere Partye du Blason d’Armoiries, Lambeth MS 774, Araldo Nel Quale si Vedono Delineate e Colorite le Armi de’ Potentati e Sovrani d’Europa, and Zrdcadlo Slavného Margrabstwii Morawského.
