Good news for Vadi fans! The black and white paperback edition of The Art of Sword Fighting in Earnest is now at the printers- I expect to see a proof copy next week- and the ebook edition is now live!
I’ve put together an ebook bundle for you here. This includes the full-colour PDF, as well as the e-reader friendly black and white version (without the facsimile), in EPUB, PDF, and Kindle formats. It is the only place where you can get the colour PDF.
Previous buyers of Veni Vadi Vici (in any format from any platform) can get the bundle for free: just email me and ask for it, and I'll send you a link.
This volume includes a detailed introduction, setting Vadi and his combat style in their historical context, a complete full-colour facsimile of the manuscript, and a detailed commentary from the perspective of the practising martial artist.
You can also get the ebook on your book-shop-website of choice. Except for the pdf which is only available through the bundle, all ebook formats are in black and white, and do not include a facsimile of the manuscript, though they do include a link to a resources page that has the scans.
Not a medieval Italian longsword fan? Fair enough. You might find the pre-release deal for my upcoming Rapier course more interesting…
