Armor and Animals

Out of stock for now, sorry!
Written by Elizabeth Yohlin Baill

Did you ever wonder where people got the idea of wearing armor? Or, did you ever look at an armadillo and see it was wearing armor just like the knights of old? Now you can see and compare all kinds of armor. This book is a great way to learn how both people and animals use their armors.

All the human armor in the photographs comes from the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Arms & Armor collection. The animals are wearing their own.
