I’ve been working on a project related to European heraldic animals, so having good references is important to me. Thankfully, I’ve found this website, which is a very detailed and very thorough coverage of heraldic devices used in Western coat of arms.
Originally a book, the whole thing has been carefully indexed and cross referenced throughout, so it’s easy to jump from one topic to another. It’s been well-illustrated, too—a boon for me as an artist. And best of all, the website is not a train wreck of coding. (Trust me, I saw an awful lot of those.)
The link takes you to the home page and the table of contents!
