|By Brian R. Price
Through more than 1,000 detailed photos and clear textual instruction, Brian Price presents a working handbook for aspiring and active armourers who want to develop and sharpen their skills in the production of medieval armour in the style of the 14th century. The book is divided into four sections: • a sweeping history of armour and its production from its medieval roots to its modern revival • a practical introduction to all the tools and supplies necessary to equip a modern workshop • a thorough review of key techniques in the armourer’s arsenal • a series of actual courses in constructing armoured defenses for the head, body, arm, hand and leg. Taking the reader through the construction of an authentic medieval harness from conception to completion, Techniques of Medieval Armour Reproduction is a vital addition to the libraries of serious craftsmen, historians, collectors and researchers.
