medieval marginalia

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

bravo! there totally is. this one is separate, though. truly just a monk thinking that nuns are secretly really into dicks.

nothing private, no. honestly just pulling images from a wide array of sources from online, though mostly i've had these images on my desktop for ages and i'm just finally going through them. does your university subscribe to artstor/jstor? i could probably direct you to some cool papers about marginalia if you wanted.

This was the best thread to wake up to. I was a Medieval/Renassaince concentration, so this shit is my jam.

I always enjoyed this in MAD magazine, I didn't realize that it had such a long history.

are there any medieval marginalia flipbooks? or did the monks of the time just not realize the animation potential?

seems like Bosch must've liked this marginalia.

for some reason I've carried around this phrase about the feast of fools in my head since college, seems apt here:

"the ebullition of the natural lout beneath the cassock"

^^ :D

the link between bosch/manuscript art hasn't been lost on scholars. check out this illustration from a manuscript by cyriac (about exotic travel) and an illustration from the garden of earthly delights -- right from the wiki page.

I had a dream about this last night. I was in an old antique store, all dark and dusty like something from the world of Watchmen. And on the wall was this old scroll of a guy reclining on a settee with a giant red crater of a butt :? and exceptionally long and curly Ming the merciless moustache. There was some Latin and I ''translated' as a moral warning about how long facial hair is a sin of sloth and leads to 'butt trumpet'.

Then I found a rare issue of Mad magazine where the topic was ghostbusters but Alfred E Neuman was dressed as Ray rather than the more common Peter cover.

Ok, back to the pictures...

fyi, re: the snails

“There have been many interpretations of the ubiquitous knight and snail motif since. According to one Flemish historian of caricature, the snail in its safe shell was a ‘satire on the powerful who in their fortified castles laughed at the threat of the poor whom they exploited’. But this does not explain why snails were the object of chivalric attention. More recently, and more persuasively, Lilian Randall argued that in 29 different manuscripts made between 1290 and 1320 the knight fighting the snail was associated with a particular ethnic group in medieval society —the cowardly Lombards, who not only bore the stigma of being turncoats but who, along with the Jews, were Europe’s bankers. The snail has been resurrected again in the broader context of folklore studies as a shifting sign for various groups in society. In some places it is an object of terror for knights, in others it is attacked by peasants, tailors and other ‘low’ groups. The snail emerging from its shell was associated with the social climber; its shape and size linked it to the genitals of women and hermaphrodites.

So can these be used commercially since they are so old or does the owner of the book have some copyright to its marginalia
