Overview

Few historical icons can match the evocative power of the medieval suit of armour, and this epic new book is a complete course in the tools and techniques of the modern armourer's art. Through more than 1,000 detailed photos and clear instruction, Brian Price presents a working handbook for aspiring and active armourers who want to develop their skills in the production of medieval armour in the style of the 14th century. The book is divided into four sections: a sweeping history of armour and its production from its medieval roots to its modern revival; a practical introduction to all the tools and supplies necessary to equip a modern workshop; a thorough review of key techniques; and a series of actual courses in constructing armoured defenses for the head, body, arm, hand and leg. Taking the reader through the construction of an authentic medieval harness from conception to completion, Techniques of Medieval Armour Reproduction is a vital addition to the libraries of serious craftsmen, historians, collectors and researchers.

    Great Book

    If you are thinking about getting in to armoring I would start here. The book goes into great detail about how to make a basic full set of armor. It goes over all the aspects of each piece. what tools are needed, how to find the tools, how to do the leather work needed for the strapping on the armor. This is an excellent book and would definitively recommend it.

    Brilliant Resource for armourers and enthusiasts

    This is definately the book that inspires the reader to take up the hammer. I am not an armourer, but after reading this book, I have begun my journey. It is loaded with pictures, diagrams, historical and reproduction armour and more! Very easy to read and captivating in its presentation. It is worth every penny, and should be on the shelf of any person that enjoys the art, creation, and romance of armour.

    Damn good Book!!!

    This book is all that you would ever need to know regarding the construction of medieval armour of the 14th Century down to custom rivets. It is detailed, but very easy to read and something that, if you love armour, you'll have a hard time sleeping until it is read cover to cover at least twice.
