April Additions to the Traceable Art

Over the last six weeks, another 230 new illustrations have been added to the Traceable Heraldic Art collection.

This steady pace is made possible by the contributors who send in art to share with the community, and so I would like to welcome the newest illustrators to join the project, Forveleth Dunde and Séamus Uí Chonchobhair.

For their ongoing efforts, my thanks also go to returning artists Saewynn aet Cnolle, Owen Tegg, Jessimond of Emerickeskepe, Iago ab Adam, Gunnvôr silfrahárr, Elionora inghean Ui Cheallaigh, and Vémundr Syvursson.

In addition, I’m continuing to draw on recently-digitized period sources like Stemmario Trivulziano and Neustifter Wappenbuch, as well as secondary texts such as Two Tudor Books of Arms, and the extensive vector-graphics collections of Gunnvôr silfrahárr (so many ermine spots!) and Nicholas de Estleche.
