Greetings, and welcome to the Book of Traceable Heraldic Art.
I am Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin, known in modern life as Matthew Simon Ryan Cavalletto.
In the summer of 2016, I developed an interest in armorial design as practiced in the Society for Creative Anachronism, and started putting together a collection of clip art to teach myself the vocabulary and to facilitate drawing emblazons for local participants. A few months later, I heard about an effort to revitalize the Pennsic Traceable Art collection, which had gone a decade without being updated. I volunteered to help, and as one thing led to another, I found myself spending the subsequent years developing this site and its supporting material.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback about this site or related matters.
