  • || Pennsic Traceable Art Project, compiled by Ailis Linne This project was begun as a response to the volume of heraldic art being
    sought every year at the consult table at Pennsic. Some of the depictions are problematic or no longer registerable. These are noted on the PTAP index on this wiki, as linked above.

    Free Heraldic Clipart, compiled by James Wolf Heraldry Many of the pieces come from Fox-Davies and Pimbley, both Victorian-era heraldic artists, and some depictions aren't quite accurate for our heraldic scope (for example, the "wavy" seen here is hardly wavy at all), but there are a lot of images, arranged alphabetically.
    Catalogue Of Period Devices, compiled by William CastilleThis book contains over 1300 blazons and emblazons of period devices taken from a number of period rolls of arms that found on Brian Timms early rolls of arms website (www.briantimms.com\era\early rolls of arms.htm). They are all black and white outline as the object of the collection is to give people an idea of what period style is. This book is supplied free of charge and may be freely copied and distributed. It is not to be sold for profit. Be Warned: the zipfile is over 6meg in size and expands to a pdf file.
    Brickbat's Armorial StashThis is a growing number of armorial bits and pieces, taken from many sources (the Pictorial Dictionary, Fox-Davies, excellent depictions of charges that come through the SCA College of Arms, anything that might look useful "for later.") WARNING!!!! This is a 25MB file that expands into individual files.http://atensubmissions.nexiliscom.com/ClipArt2.zip ||
