Ancien Armorial équestre de la Toison d’Or. Around 1435.
Compilation of equestrian portraits from european nobility and knights, in full heraldic outfits.
This book is one of my favourite things in the world, I fell in love during a exhibition in Paris, an guess what, I just discovered that you can check it online : http://expositions.bnf.fr/livres/armorial/index.htm
My life is now cooler.
For those who don’t speak french, just click “lancer le livre” to enjoy this medieval wonder.
“The concept is simple. Take a blank sheet with nothing but the basic outline of a pinup girl and illustrate a unique scene around her.”
