Reconstruction of a German noble coat of arms

Transylvanian Heraldic and Vexillological Association

The heraldic bookplate of Christopher S. T. Mackie, UE, BA, LLB, LRHSC, of the Noble Clan of Mackay.
The composition displays several armorial and allegorical symbols, as well as an image of Stirling Castle, a paramount to Scotland’s history and cultural heritage.
Fictional heraldry: the coat of arms of the Empire of Ardria. 
Having as capital the ideal city of Perigloriën, this is the place „…of a people with the sea at their backs and the sun on their faces, of a people who do not bend, like loyal oaks…”. 
The work was commissioned by the American author Sean Anderson: http://periglorien.com/
The coat of arms of Paul Lindsay of Brisbane, Australia 
(acrylics, tempera, watercolor on cardboard). 
The composition features the late-Gothic style, being also decorated with the pennon of the armiger, who is a vexillologist. 
The green field is a hint to the armiger’s title of Bachelor of Agricultural Science. The great bordure chequy azure and argent alludes to the fess of the coat of arms. The four corners are charged with Gothic initials “P” and “B”, for the given names of the armiger: Paul and Benjamin. The black spaces between the great bordure and the four-lobed Gothic tracery are decorated with yellow flowers of wattle (also present in the coat of arms of Australia). The initial „L” letter is decorated with a beetle stag, alluding the second charge of his shield, but also the armiger’s specialization in Entomology.
Heraldic ex-libris of Gerard Cornielje. 
The composition was inspired after a medieval type of equestrian seal, the horse being however replaced with an unicorn, as a hint to the family name of the armiger (because the Latin word 'Cornus' stands for 'Horn'). The knight was displayed wearing the shield and helmet with crest, as in the family's coat of arms.

Heraldic bookplate of Senhor. Arturo Mário da Mota Miranda (Portugal), director of the publication “Contemporary International Ex-Libris Artists”. 
The composition features the style of the Lusitanian heraldry of the early 16th century, as brilliantly illustrated by the António Godinho’s "Livro da nobreza e da perfeição das armas dos reis cristãos e nobres linhagens dos reinos e senhorios de Portugal". 
The bookplate displays the coat of arms of the family, as matriculated in 1762. The shield adjoins the arms of Mota, Teixeira, Costa e Coelho.


Painted coat of arms of Gerard Cornielje (acrylics, tempera, watercolor).
Motto: "Audentes Fortuna Iuvat" (written in the formula "Avdentes Fortvna Jvvat")
The composition features the late-Gothic style, including a "targa da torneo", typical for the Italian heraldic art of the 15th c.
The dark-blue background semé with stars signifies that the roots of the family are lost in the depths of time.
The initial "C" is decorated with the flag of the armiger.


Armorial ex-libris of David Andrew Hovey, Esq., of Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia




The armorial ex-libris of Paul E. L. T. Borrow-Longain Esq.
Latin inscription, in Gothic letters: “† S(IGILLUM) DOMINI PAULI BORROW-LONGAIN”






The bookplate of Mr. Łukasz Tor-Garczewski from Poznan (Poland), displaying an equestrian figure in full heraldic attire.
Mr. Garczewski’s badge appears on the horse’s barding. The same badge and other five symbols decorate the Gothic tracery (clockwise): 1) the letters ‘DA’ standing for the familiy motto „Ducere Aude” (also reproduced on the horse’s rein); 2) a key and a sword for SS. Peter and Paul, patrons of Poznan; 3) the shield of the International Association of Amateur Heralds; 4) the badge of the White Lion Society; 5) a satyr holding a hammer and a bolt of lightning, symbols alluding the nickname ‘Tor’.
The bush with thorns is an allusion to the name Toruń (Thorn), birthplace of Mr. Tor-Garczewski.
The tracery is also decorated with bundles of cranberry, Mr. Tor-Garczewski being member of the “Żurawinka” (= little cranberry) Organization.
Latin inscription, in Gothic letters: “† SIGILLUM DOMINI LUCAE TOR GARCZEWSKI”






Another kind of heraldry: a coat of arms illustrating art and ecology.
Designed for a theatrical company of Bucharest, the purpose of the achievement is to be used during workshops on ecology. The idea of the composition has been D. M. Larson’s “Unicorns and Alley Cats”, a children’s play. The cat appearing between blocks signifies the features of the urban civilization (aggressiveness, disorder, poorly understood idea of independence etc.), while the unicorn appears as a symbol of innocence and justice, connected with the renewal through ‘going back to nature’.
The shape of the shield – a spade – has been chosen as a hint of the work for nature conservation and recycling. Decorated with an entire floral collection, the tire that encircles the shield depicts the same idea of recycling for the sake of nature.

My most recent work: the heraldic ex-libris of Mr. Richard Globe (Copenhagen).
Inspired by a late 15th century type of equestrian seal, the composition refers to the fact that the armiger was born in Canada but has lived most of his life in Europe, finally settling in Denmark.
The composition also includes three groups of two crowned lions facing each other, alluding the state coats of arms of Canada and Denmark.
