Albrecht Duerer’s “Book of Fencing”

19still on of my favorites, Duerer’s work dates back to the year 1510 and is – except maybe Paulus Hector Mair’s compilation of half a century later- unparalleled in it’s combination of technical excellence and artistic implementation.

I made this collage from some of the pics from the Dörnhöffer edition some years ago, and I still like it.


Corpora putrescunt tumulis,

mens vivit Olympo.
