Whilst this book will be an armorial, it is not just an armorial; its main purpose is to illustrate the practical usage of armory by all who have a grant or devisal from The College. Wherever you are domiciled, if your arms are recorded in the College of Arms you are invited to submit photographs along with details of any armorial item you have made use of be it your Letters Patent, library painting, seal matrix, flag, cutlery, badges, silver and gold, wood carving, stone and other engraved items ……… As a bare minimum we would request that you illustrate your entry with an original grant or devisal of arms (be it honourary or substantive) or exemplification document (we would be happy to blank out addresses etc if you so wish). The book will have a similar layout to A Celebration of Scottish Heraldry and to give you a flavour of what A Celebration of Heraldry – The College of Arms Edition may consist of some examples can be found here.Not only is the publication a great way to show the various usage of Heraldry emanating from the College of Arms it will also benefit your favoured heraldic artists and craftsmen.

Participation in this project is FREE (although obviously there will be a cost associated with the purchase of the actual book if participants wish to acquire one). In you require further information or assistance please contact The Armorial Register Ltd.
