IMAGE: 24 handpicked icons from the hundreds to be found in Royal Book of Crests of Great Britain and Ireland, Dominion of Canada, India and Australasia, a book published in 1883 detailing the incredible variety of the, often bizarre, heraldic symbols in use throughout the British Isles and Commonwealth. Each image would carry it’s own cluster of significations – e.g. a cat meaning courage or a cloud mystery – though historians debate exactly to what these meanings are.
PAPER: Available on a variety of different papers from normal poster paper, through to heavyweight archival and premium canvas – prices starting from around $16/€14/£12.
