Slim album of engravings with hugely outlandish chariot images purporting to record the triumphal entrance of a Russian Prince into the city of Venice. The bullock-drawn chariots feature some classical figures and embellished accoutrements as befitting the rococo-on-baroque cusp of ornament/design.

Mad, epic processions of absurd satyr-powered strapwork 'chariot' styled vehicles that are pushed by humans and fantasy animals with everything draped in abstracted grotesque features of trophies and garlands. Hilarious satire in my book.

Colourful, detailed manuscript pages from (?)1700 after designs from early 16th c. by Durer/Altdorfer/Burgkmair who produced a series of woodcuts intended to celebrate the life of Maximilian I (Roman Emperor). So these pictures are of a grand procession (imaginary) with animals (real and fantastical), soldiers, flags, carriages and royalty intended as a propagandising vehicle for Maximilian to honour and promote his Hapsburg lineage among associates, other rulers and city rulers in his empire.

Anthropomorphic costume designs from 1870s and Islamic-themed float designs from 1910 relating to the New Orleans Mardi Gras parade. Fun, weird design caricatures of Darwin and Civil War figures plus traditional ostentatious float sketches.

This is a group of trophies / insignia / allegorical engravings and rebus (visual words) designs that form part of a manuscript record of a competition between drama/rhetoric societies held at Antwerp in 1561. This whole guild movement in the Low Countries is a fairly esoteric but very influential phenomenon, particularly in disseminating the tenets of the Reformation.

Hand-painted 16th c. manuscript illustrations featuring pairs of knights on horseback in a parade, after designs by Hans Bergkmair. The illustrations are bright, intricate and exquisite, particularly in rendering the horse blanket and headwear decorative motifs/family colours. The original designs were produced for a multi-artist work dedicated to Emperor Maximilian I.
