A new update in our recent publications section. Sometimes it is hard to keep track of all the articles that appear in different magazines and books that are published in different languages and regions. Therefore we provide a list of recent publications in English, German and French, so you can get an overview of the latest interesting heraldic reads. This list contains publications on heraldry that have been published since our last update. Some titles are followed by links to websites with more information. This overview is not complete. If you know of any new publications, please let us know by using the comment box below, and we will include those books and articles in the next list.

    Maybe you could also give an account of Italian works? Since a few years Italian works on heraldry grow in quantity and quality, though at a long distance from other European coutries.

    I would like to cite here works of mines or works in which I took part, as:

    – Dal giglio al David. Arte civica a Firenze fra Medioevo e Rinascimento, a c. di M.M. Donato e D. Parenti, Firenze, Giunti, 2013.
    – L’arme segreta. Araldica e storia dell’arte nel medioevo, a c. di M. Ferrari, con la collaborazione di A. Savorelli e L. Cirri, introduzione di A. Savorelli, Le Lettere, Firenze, Le Lettere, 2015.
    – Le Marche sugli scudi. Atlante storico degli stemmi comunali, a cura di M. Carassai, testi di A. Conti, V. Favini e A. Savorelli, disegni di M. Ghirardi, Fermo, AndreaLivi Editore, 2015.
    – A. Savorelli, 66. Quanti sono i «nove stemmi della Repubblica Fiorentina»? Un indovinello dantesco, «Nobiltà», XXIII, nov.-dic. 2015, n. 129, pp. 565-584.

      Thank you for this comment. Due to our limited knowledge of the Italian language, these works often don’t appear on our radar (although “L’arme segreta” has received some attention in this blog and was part of the previous Recent Publications update). So thank you making use aware of these publications and we will include them in the next list.
