To celebrate the 340th anniversary of the Lyon King of Arms Act 1672 The Armorial Register Limited, publishers of The International Register of Arms, is inviting the submission of digital photographic material for the publication of a fully illustrated prestigious book A Celebration of Scottish Heraldry, dedicated to the many practical ways in which Scottish Armigers of today enjoy and demonstrate their personal armorial bearings.

Whilst this book will be an armorial of sorts, it is not just an armorial; its main purpose is to illustrate the practical usage of Scots Armory in the 21st century. If your arms are recorded in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland you are invited to submit photographs, along with details, of any armorial item you may or have had commissioned be it your Letters Patent, library painting, crest badge, seal matrix, flag, flatware, dirks, sporrans, engraved items ……… As a bare minimum we would request that you illustrate your entry with an original grant of arms or matriculation document (we are happy to blank out personal details such as home addresses etc if you so wish). From our own collections we have put together a number of sample pages illustrating our intentions and showing items which we feel would be of interest to enthusiasts throughout the world and would also benefit your favoured heraldic artists and craftsmen by mentioning them and acknowledging their work in the text.

Participation in this project is FREE (although obviously there will be a cost associated with the purchase of the actual book should participants wish to acquire a copy in due course). If you require further information or assistance please contact The Armorial Register Ltd..
