Crests & Coats of Arms

One thing that I see a lot of, during the digitisation of the Cardinal Newman Archive, is paper.

In these days of email and text message, I had to think of the last time I sat down and wrote somebody a letter. Its been a while, but if I had to, I’d be hard pressed to find some decent paper to write it on. I’m sure the majority of people would have to resort to raiding their computer printer tray for a sheet of white A4. So I found great interest in the Crests and Coats of Arms that decorate much of the correspondence in the archive.

Here are just a few.

  1. Thank you for posting this! I hadn’t realized there were so many crests to be found within the Cardinal’s archive. It’s a stunning compilation you’ve done! Would make a nice poster.
