The Heraldic Art of John Ferguson


The interpretation of heraldic symbolism in a variety of materials is an ancient and honourable craft requiring great skill and inventiveness, qualities acquired only through rigorous training, long experience and an appreciation of the 'heraldic imagination'. John Ferguson has long been recognised as pre-eminent among the heraldic artists of his generation. He was among the small band of enthusiasts who in 1987 founded the Society of Heraldic Arts which today is established as a highly respected international guild of heraldic artists, designers and craftspeople. Among his many achievements, he is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, a Fellow of the Society of Heraldic Arts and of the Heraldry Society, and a Distinguished Fellow of the American College of Heraldry.

This book not only celebrates John Ferguson's pre-eminence as an artist, it also proclaims that generosity of spirit which has been an inspiration to his fellow artists and to those who love and admire his amazing artistry.
Features 62 full colour illustrations.
