CONSULTANCY AND PICTURES
My consultancy service for film, publishing and television, and a picture library
Welcome to my newly redesigned website for 2022.
After many years away due to eyesight problems I am back to military modelling! Come and meet me at the White Rose Figure World North next Saturday June 11th at Easingwold near York, where I will be signing books and displaying some samurai armour. Visit my new section here.
I have a second volume in my new Art of War series. Entitled The Ikko-ikki Art of War as illustrated in the Military Chronicles, it consists of 101 pictures from woodblock printed books of Japan's "holy warriors" and the Ishiyama War when they took on Oda Nobunaga.
My book on the Ōnin War has been published along with the Osprey Essential History War in Japan 1467-1615. So much new material has become available since 2003 it is practically a new book AND it will have all new pictures.
Christmas 2022 will see my new Osprey Combat: Mongol Warrior vs European Knight, Eastern Europe 1237-42. The three engagements covered are Legnica (Liegnitz), Muhi (Sajo River) and the siege of Esztergom.
I am now translating new material on the Hōjō family of samurai for a book for 2023.
I also provide an advisory and consultancy service about Japan including a picture library holding 35,000 items.
