Thank you Swiftbrook for working that out - we'll get that art up on the PathfinderWiki later today now.
I am looking forward to reading this book very much.
Just got my hardcopy and realise the chapter heading art spreads across two pages - very beautiful and a nice new touch to the Campaign Setting line that I hope we see again.
If Paizo is having trouble coming up with Blog posts, one about this book with some of that large artwork would be marvellous please, as we have a place where we can use those images well.

Thanks you Adam for the reply. Your creation is now curated at the Pathfinder Wiki under Fixer robot.
A few questions if I may about the Venacdahlia family.
From p13 it seems to suggest that Countess Solismina Venacdahlia is in charge in Ardeal - she gets the same treatment in the book as other county leaders. This begs a few questions:
1. What happened to her husband, Count Olomon Venacdahlia? Is he dead? When did he die?
2. If he is dead, why didn't his oldest daughter become the ruling countess as he had no sons? Under normal European primogeniture laws, Solismina would become a dowager countess with no obvious political power I think (I am no expert and I know Ustalav is not in Europe).
3. Separately from the questions above, was Olomon the ruler at the time Ardis was demoted as capital of Ustalav?
These are detail I know, but I'd like to add the answers to the Pathfinder Wiki.
This is a lovely book: thank you. One of those that didn't at first sight look as though it was going to be particularly interesting - a list of powerful magic items unlikely to be used in many campaigns. In fact, it is crammed full of back story and Golarion usefulness as well as suggesting how to incorporate such power in a game.
I particularly like the little touches, for instance, the date associated with Saint Cuthbert's Mace, which I have referenced on the PathfinderWiki.
Over at the PathfinderWiki we are beginning to create a list of all the areas of Golarion canon where a Paizo employee has stated that the particular subject will always be a mystery and never revealed to the public. For instance, how exactly did Aroden die?
The embryonic page may be found here: Mysteries of Golarion.
We'd be grateful for help creating this page as this sort of material isn't usually found in Paizo's publications but, rather, on messageboards, in conference presentations or on podcasts.
Please add anything you have to the new wiki page, or append it here if you'd prefer; if you can give us a reference to where the statement was made, even better.
To confirm: all subdomain information to this point in this forum is collated into the PathfinderWiki, in summary format, at:
Individual information is also incorporated into each deity's page.
We endeavour to keep up to date with this excellent work by James and the community.
