    Looking for reference for weapons, armour, etc.

    I'm looking for some reference and history books on arms and armor from, well, pretty much all eras of history. I want to get ahold of some books that are good to do studies from, as well as books that teach the history behind weapons/armor, and also the more technical aspects of the stuff.

    Any era of weaponry will do really, but given that I'm especially interested in fantasy art, armor/weapons from medieval oriental or european culture would be most appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. Any tips you can give on drawing weapons, armor, etc. that you'd like to share would also be appreciated.
