Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is pleased to announce the release of the new book by Randall Hixenbaugh and illustrated by Alexander Valdman: Ancient Greek Helmets: a Complete Guide and Catalog. It is most comprehensive study ever produced on the subject of ancient Greek armor, tracing the development of the ancient Greek helmet from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic Period, cataloging over 2150 ancient Greek helmets in both public and private collections, examining every aspect of the design, manufacture, use, and cultural relevance of the military helmet in ancient Greek culture, with 144 figures and 712 original color illustrations.

Ancient Greek helmets are emblematic of the culture that created them at a time when entire nations were often obliterated by more powerful adversaries. Yet the Greeks survived and thrived. Their armor was the product of a culture that respected free thought, foreign trade and exchange of ideas, and scientific inquiry unhindered by religious dogma. In their elegant and effective designs, we see the accumulation of these unique factors: individuality, industry, pursuit of excellence, and the desire to protect the lives and property of men that cherished these values.
