  1. This is amazing stuffy Holly, thanks for sharing!

    Sorry to nitpick but this is from Holy Grail not Life of Brian, I'm sure that was just a typo.

    Anyway, thanks again

  3. Brilliant!

    My three and a half year old, who is sitting on my desk, just asked me, "Is that the king and the old men... who couldn't put Humpty together again?"

  4. Many of the illumination-like cutouts were based on medieval manuscripts, by the way. A medieval historian once found out which text book TG must've used.
