Bibliographies & Journals

Here we try to provide an overview of academic, often secondary literature on heraldry. Aside from bibliographies, we aim to collect a list of the most important heraldic journals in English, German and French. Click on the link behind the journal title to access the journal’s website. We also provide overview and reviews of most recent publications. Further suggestions and contributions are most welcome.
