They say the language of love is French. In our case, it’s the language of fencing! Our artwork is inspired by Gérard Thibault d’Anvers’ Academie de l’Espée (1630). We are really excited about this phase of the project – translating these beautiful images into textile designs. Have a favorite image you’d like to see? Let us know!
We have created a unique luggage tag inspired by one of the most elaborate illustrations in the book – describing the angles of the human body as they relate to swordfighting. We promise you will never mistake your bag for anyone else’s. Show your love of Renaissance sword fighting when you travel!
As a clothing and textile designers, who are also students of historical sword fighting, SwordGeek’s Boutique brings together the things we love most! The richly detailed art of these manuscripts have provided us endless design inspiration for items for home and body, walls and sofas.
