Another year, another milestone! Specifically, Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs, Historical Drive-In Movie Critic, has finished another year of reviewing movies set in the Middle Ages, Renaissance, or other pre-technological worlds, which have now been added to the collection, making it now 34 Years of Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to the Movies. This collection now contains 411 (No, really! Four hundred eleven! [Though it's an odd number because over the years there have been a few times when Da'ud Bob reviewed more than one movie in a month; a "double feature," if you will. Or even if you won't]) movie reviews, plus an alphabetical listing with the month and year in which each review was first published, and, as a bonus, a PowerPoint program, "If ... You Might Be Watching a Da'ud Bob Movie." (As only one example from the presentation: "If chickens are used as missile weapons ... against Roman legionaries ... You might be watching a Da'ud Bob movie.") This updated collection is available on CD-ROM or on a USB drive, and can be found for sale on the Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs introductory page or through the Order Page on this website.




We are now offering a collection of sixteen years of our small (3" x 3") cross-stitch charts of heraldic charges. 192 (count 'em! That's 192) needlework charts of heraldic charges on a CD-ROM or USB drive at one low price for the entire collection. You can find a list of all of the heraldic charges in this large collection, and order it on CD-ROM or a USB drive, here on our Needlework page. Or see our Order page for our order forms.




We keep regularly adding new entries to our web log, or blog, about heraldry. The blog is musings of one kind or another about some of the heraldry that we see or run across in our research. The hope is that our readers will find it informative, educational and of interest. We also have links to some of the better on-line armorials and ordinaries, heraldry websites, heraldry books, heraldic clipart, movie clips, and other blogs about heraldry, to all of which we continue to add as we find good ones. We encourage you to check it out and, if you find it interesting, to drop back by on a regular basis to see what's new. Or you can become a Follower and get notifications of new posts emailed directly to your in-box. (There's a link to do that down the left-hand column on the blog's page.) You can find our blog, Heraldry: Musings on an esoteric topic on-line at http://blog.appletonstudios.com




Drop by our Free Stuff page, where we will place various goodies that you can access or download for free.


Our free heraldic needlework chart for this month has been uploaded here (or you can use the link on our Free Stuff page). (These needlework charts are a series of charts of various heraldic charges. They are in .pdf format, but if you'd prefer one of these free charts as a .jpg or .gif or in some other format, please feel free to write, telephone, or e-mail us at the address, telephone number, or e-mail addresses here and we will be happy to send you one! Let us know which format you prefer.)


As noted above, we are now offering a collection of sixteen years of our small (3" x 3") cross-stitch charts of heraldic charges. The entire collection of 192 needlework charts of heraldic charges on a CD-ROM or USB drive. You can find a list of all of the heraldic charges in this large collection, and order it on CD or USB drive, here on our Needlework page. Or see our Order page for our order forms.


Naturally, we're hoping that you will see actual examples of what we can produce and ask us to create charts of larger, more complex heraldic works, or customized needlework or embroidery charts on any subject. In the meantime, though, we are finding it a fun project that let's us combine our various interests - heraldry and textile arts - and we hope that you may find them entertaining and educational as well.
