A Knight in Armor

A Knight in Armor

Riverside, CA: Bo Press Miniature Books, circa 2015. Open edition. According to the book artist: "No phrase is quite so evocative of the Middle Ages in Europe than 'a knight in shining armor.' This book follows the arming, or as Shakespeare called it, the 'accomplishing', of a knight:  from the medieval underwear called braies, through the many padded layers of wool and linen that absorbed the blows of battle and the scraping of the armor, through the overlapping layers of metal plates that, when properly tied  to the arming clothes, would protect the knight from anything that could be thrown at him until the introduction of the longbow and firearms." Bound in marbled paper covered boards with black title to spine. In translucent dust jacket with title printed on spine and front panels. This charming book of knightly fashion includes 48 illustrations of a knight, showing each garment worn with a description on the facing page. Each plate is preceded by a translucent overlay of the featured garment, and each plate builds on the next, so you can see the progression of the knight's dressing piece by piece. Also includes an introduction with several illustrations. 114 pages. Size: 2 1/8 x 1 5/8 inches. ARTB/120219. Fine.
