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.
