Description Shiny Shapes by Joanneum Landesmuseum

The armoury in the Styrian State Museum Joanneum represents one of the finest collections of its kind. This outstanding work gives the beholder the impression that here is something altogether modern, pieces of armor suddenly taking on the character of secretive-looking figures from another planet. Lucid commentaries explain both the cultural history of arms and armor, and the background to their manufacture, from the late Middle Ages to the Baroque period. Text, photography and layout combine to enable the reader to appreciate not only the sensual aura of this world-famous collection but also the intricate workmanship of material and design displayed in the individual objects. The result is not only an essential resource for anyone interested in armory but also an inspiration for designers.
