Description
Jousting rabbits; snails embattled with armored knights; hybrid creatures; and other nonsensical monsters. These unusual images painted in the margins of illuminated manuscripts have amused and confused us for centuries. This brief art historical overview will explore some of the origins of these fantastic creatures and other marginalia and where to find them.
