3.0 out of 5 stars Elementary March 16 2005
By Joshua Drake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book provides a very elementary introduction to Heraldry. The basic layout of a Coat of Arms is discussed, including a very brief history, along with the rules of placement and description for the major elements. The author also includes some discussion of the prevailing Heraldry of countries around the world, including medieval countries. The appendixes include elements for the user to trace or imitate when creating their own Coat of Arms. Lastly there is some contact information for organizations involved with Heraldry.

The book lacks depth. It provides nothing resembling an exhaustive list of elements; only a few basic forms and styles are covered. Further there is nil discussion concerning the meaning of the elements presented. The most a reader can learn is that crowns and lions rampant are symbols of Royalty, and some of that we have to infer. The work feels directed to early middle school children and should probably be marked as Young Reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and Informative. Nov. 10 2011
By Just a Guy on Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rosemary A. Chorzempa's 'Design Your Own Coat of Arms: An Introduction to Heraldry' is an enjoyable and informative book, full of crisp, detailed black and white sigils for the many, many, many houses and bloodlines out there.

While I found it to be informative, it did read a bit slow, and I had trouble staying with it til the end. My son - no interest in it at all.

Still, my ADD is my short coming, not the books, and so I still gave it high marks for originality and enjoyability. Based on a previous review I read here, I liked the idea of utilizing this book to create a themed birthday party with its information.

It also has served me well whilst painting my collection of medieval miniature soldiers,

Nice. Not thrilling. But Nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fun and intersting! June 28 2010
By Sara Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have enjoyed making our own coat of arms and learning about some of the details behind the original creation of these items. I would have preferred more information on what the standards symbolized, etc. We will be enlarging our design and painting on the wall of my son's bedroom!
