Posta Photos?

Postby Jeffrey Hull » 15 Nov 2006 21:09

Hello SG:

Do you guys plan to post photographs of one or more of yourselves, either in article or maybe within PDF, of how you like to do Dei Liberi's 12 unarmoured Posta for longsword (say as per Pisani-Dossi) and/or his armoured Posta?

:?:

I like the pictures in P-D edition as much as anyone, yet I would enjoy seeing such as interpreted by Schola Gladiatoria.

The Exiles list something at their website as having their versions forthcoming, but those have yet to materialise.

Thanks,
Jeffrey Hull

Hi Jeffrey - we've had them online (ala Getty) for about 4 years or so :) -

Of course those were there the whole time! :shock:

I was just too lazy and presumptuous to search for them there. :twisted:

Really though, thanks for posting those, I can enjoy perusing them now that I know of their existence. :)

Hopefully not too silly for this section, as it did start off as a serious idea.
But I can't find the serious GIF version.
Just too late for Halloween - to the music of either 'Thriller' or 'I Can't Dance'

...and there's always the one on the Getty's website. Although it's not on display at the meseum, you can see it here; http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/artObjectDetails?artobj=1706

...wow... cool... first post gets a thanks from Matt 8)

One thing I dint mention is the description the museum puts on the manuscript.... one *might* sum it up as "Cool pretty pictures of guys on horses with weapons and stuff.. with gold leaf even!" ( just a joke mr JPGetty M lawyer :roll: )

One coolio factoid... they add to Fiore's name / title.. which I need to track down now. BTW.. they sell Hi-Res JPGs of the manuscipt... extra points if you can figure out how to order them, without asking me 8)

The hi-res images are very interesting and clearly show meaning in the use of gold leaf and coloring.. which limb has the gold leaf, where are there gold leaf 'anklets' and 'bracelets'... and what they mean. Now when I learn the ancient dialect it's written in... Also, they describe it's binding, but no image is available, not the cover nor the back, not even when you buy the 85 'folios' available
