Illuminated Initials of the Chansons d'Amour Thott 291 8º manuscript (late 15th century): appreciation thread

Follow

I really must emphasise that these are initials. This person was asked to "do a pretty-looking T" and they thought "oh I know: snail hat"

@garfiald all the best image captions start with "Fuck it."

@garfiald I wonder how many people read this and got really excited before getting to "(drawn)"

GNU incunable 

@garfiald well this is Richard Stallman, what is he doing here?

@garfiald i think my favorite in this whole thread is the monkey riding the dragon, snail hat is pretty great though
