We all try and get into the past by way of our figures and researching the periods we play. I used to support a reenactment group ( late fifteenth century Burgundian) called The Company of St George by subscribing to their journal The Dragon. I used to get letters about my subscription when it was to be renewed from John Howe . Friendly letters of thanks for my support. I never new he was the wonderful illustrator who is so famous today….
The group was set up by Gerry Embleton the illustrator probably known to most of you. As I have been painting my figures this week I got out his book here featured for ideas for livery colours. It has always been one of my favourites, packed with great illustrations and photos bringing the past to life. Well worth buying if medieval is your thing and if not, it might surprise you.
