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 insignia of the Pope and clergy, state seals, and emblems of modern institutions...."
