Editorial Reviews

Selftaught Rob Valeintine has been hand crafting chain mail and plate armour for more than seventeen years. During this time span he has built more than 200 full suites of armour of different styles and over 600 helmets of all designs. In The Art Of Making Armour: A Craftman's Guide To Creating Authentic Armour Reproductions, Valentine draws upon his considerable expertise and experience to show the neophyte how to construct a complete suit of armour. His "reader friendly" text is wonderfully showcased with profuse photography throughout. The Art Of Making Armour is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in medieval armour, its design, and handcrafted manufacture.
