Traceable Additions for May

Another two hundred and forty illustrations have been added to the Book of Traceable Heraldic Art during the last six weeks.

I’m not much of artist, relying on others to share their illustrations, so I’m very pleased to welcome Alessandra Sartor as a new contributor, and give thanks to the continuing efforts of Iago ab Adam, Jessimond of Emerickeskepe, Saewynn aet Cnolle, Forveleth Dunde, Elionora inghean Ui Cheallaigh, Malys mac Néill, Zubeydah al-Badawiyyah, and Estelle de la Mer.

Other images are drawn from period sources; appearing for the first time in this update are elements from Codice Trivulziano 2168, Armorial Français et Plus Particulièrement Poitevin, and Armas de los Cavalleros de Veneçia, alongside images from previously-mined sources including Jérôme de Bara’s Le Blason Des Armoiries and the various manuscripts of the Arlberg Brotherhood of St. Christopher.

  1. Hello. Nice to meet you. I’m Japanese.
    This website is very great. Thank you.
    I always visit this great website.

    I found spelling mistake in Shapes & Symbols
    Mitsutomoe is spelling mistake. Mitsudomoe is right.

    巴 is tomoe. 三つ巴 is mitsudomoe .
    三つ巴(mitsudomoe) is three tomoe(巴).

    By the way ,( Three Lozenges Conjoined in Pale) is called 三階菱(sangaibishi) in Japanese
    三階 means three floors and 菱 means Lozenge

    Also Japanese Nailpuller is called 釘抜き(kuginuki) in Japanese.

    (Four Japanese Nailpullers Two and Two) is called 四つ目(yotsume) in Japanese.
    yotsume means four eyes.

    I’m not good at English. Sorry.

    1. Hello, and thank you so much for your feedback!

      I’m glad to learn the Japanese names for these symbols. I need to keep items listed under the names they’re called in our system of heraldry to make them easy for English-speakers to find, but I’ll add the Japanese terms and alternate spellings to the pages to ensure they’re also discoverable that way and to help people learn their proper names.

      I’d love to improve and expand the representation of Japanese symbols in this collection — another item on my long-term to-do list!

      Thanks again for providing this information,

      — Mathghamhain
