Sadly I have little of actual historical artwork, but I have much in the way of realistic examples of A&A, as well as a few other bits and pieces I've picked up.

I hope that'll be alright.

12thC Anon here

http://manuscriptminiatures.com/search/ is a brilliant source of period art.

If people were interested I could give a short talk about interpreteing medieval artwork in a few hours.

In the meantime here are some dead babies (and knights).

of course, 1/2 the fun is mis-interpreting the marginalia.

This isn't exactly period art, but I think it gets the point across okay.

Anyone know of some good books with armor diagrams?
>>
>>44734031
Here's one. Which reminds me...

>>44730781
...that I need to sit down with this and similar and dig around a bit for 1400-1450 German illustrations, painting, etc one of these days.

Well things took a lot longer to sort out than I thought it would. Such is life.

I have the stuff typed out, but seeing as the thread is pretty dead and it is getting late I will wait until the morning if the thread is still up or until next we have an A&A topic if it dies.
