I recenty received a Pinterest notice that had screen-caps of uniforms and costumes ancient Greek, Macedonian and Roman Republican era armies that are from a french language book. They resemble the Histoire et Collections formats but they are somewhat different.

Can anyone direct me to the book, books or publisher?

Many thanks in advance!

Could it be from one of the Funcken Uniform books?

Arms And Uniforms: Part 1 Ancient Egypt to 18th Century – They can be found in multiple languages including French

Nope – this is a much more recent book… published in the last 20 years…perhaps in the last couple? Again it's in the HetC format so the images are of individual infantry, cavalry, elephants, etc. All are computer generated and not the illustrations found in Funchen books.

Can you post a link to one of the images?

Well it looks like the books are from a company called LRT Editions. LRT is short for Little Round Top (slightly odd for a French company). Started in 2008, according to this post-

Contains a link to a company website, now dead apparently. Wayback Machine suggests it was active 2008-10, but it doesn't seem to have archived much.
