so metropolitan museum of art has a register of books they’ve published that are out of print and that you can download for free! they’re mostly books on art, archeology, architecture, fashion and history and i just think that’s super useful and interesting so i wanted to share! you can find all of the books available here!

So there’s obviously a FUCKTON of interesting stuff here, but these are for @heroineimages, @we-are-knight, @darksp3ctre​, @victoriansword​ (among many many others, I can’t tag you all!)

The Academy of the Sword: Illustrated Fencing Books 1500–1800 The Armored Horse in Europe, 1480–1620 Arms and Armor: Notable Acquisitions, 1991–2002  The Art of Chivalry: European Arms and Armor from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Art of the Samurai: Japanese Arms and Armor, 1156–1868 Catalogue of European Court Swords and Hunting Swords Including the De Dino, Riggs, and Reubell Collections Catalogue of European Daggers including the Ellis, De Dino, Riggs and Reubell collections European Helmets, 1450–1650: Treasures from the Reserve Collection The Gods of War: Sacred Imagery and the Decoration of Arms and Armor Heroic Armor of the Italian Renaissance: Filippo Negroli and his Contemporaries Of Arms and Men: Arms and Armor at the Metropolitan, 1912–2012 Warriors of the Himalayas: Rediscovering the Arms and Armor of Tibet

And for the Rogues? Well there’s the catalogue of European daggers above, and the Gods of War has examples of kris and katar daggers and such, and may I suggest a rogue artist? Caravaggio moved around the underworld like a fish in water and possibly died in a knife fight. And take a Canaletto for Venice, aww.
