Traceable Art Quarantine Update

Over the last forty days or so, I’ve added another two hundred and thirty illustrations to the Traceable Heraldic Art web site.

Thanks to Iago ab Adam and Vémundr Syvursson, both of An Tir, who contributed a number of items to the collection in recent weeks. Master Iago’s adaptations from the Wappenbuch Conrads von Grünenberg are particularly striking, capturing the idiosyncratic character of the original roll while adhering to the clean line-art requirements of our submissions format.

(If you have line-art images you’re willing to share with the community in this way, get in touch! I’d love to have both brand-new charges and new versions of existing charges in different artistic styles.)

Thanks also to Bruce Draconarius of Caid, whose #NotYetRegistered posts provided leads to a number of new charges found in period armory which hadn’t yet been used within the Society.

I’ve continued to work on importing the remaining beasts from Gunnvôr silfrahárr’s collection of SVG Images For Heralds, and from period documents like the Wappenbuch der Arlberg-Bruderschaft and the Bellenville Armorial.

The unwieldy catch-all “Assorted Objects” volume has been cut down to size by separating some subsets of related charges into distinct volumes for Tools, Buildings, Arts, and Ships/Fishing. These make it much easier to discover new charges within a particular theme without having to page through six hundred miscellaneous entries.

As with previous updates, each item listed below includes a single design unless a number is provided in parentheses, and represents a new heading unless marked as an addition.
