Heraldic Design : Its Origins, Ancient Forms and Modern Usage
Strong line art of heraldry and plenty of contextual explanations in this rich sourcebook of approximately 500 permission-free, black-and-white designs. This study traces history and meaning of the shield, symbols, crests, helmets, and blazonry, with special emphasis on such devices as beasts, monsters, human and part-human figures but also full of unusual heraldry such as U.S govt seal designs. 

From the publishers notes: "American, British, French, and Russian costs of arms are displayed, as are insignias of the Pope and clergy, state seals, and emblems of modern institutions..... An invaluable reference for anyone interested in genealogy, this collection of handsome images will also add a touch of class to art and craft projects."
