We are approaching the final days of 2016 and this calls for an update in our recent publications section. This list contains publications on heraldry as well as articles and books in which heraldry plays a supportive part. It provides an overview of interesting reads that have been published since our last update, including recent publications that we missed last time but definitely deserve mentioning. Thanks to the support of our colleagues from Italy this edition holds several Italian studies. The 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.

    I would suggest the following book as well:

    R. Barbattini, M. Ghirardi and G. Giovinazzo, Api delle città. La figura dell’ape nell’araldica civica italiana (San Godenzo, 2016)
    This book examines the Italian civic and provincial coats-of-arms (by including the ones currently located in France, but that were part of the old Kingdom of Italy and the Kingdom of Sardinia) linked with the beekeeping world.
    This book has 248 pages that includes more than 100 coats-of-arms representations of 90 different municipalities.
    Further information can be found at the following link:
