Easter Bunnies with Swords

We've taken the holiday weekend off, so we haven't written any super-illuminating blog posts that will blow your mind.  So, instead, a day early (we usually post on Monday) here are some illuminated manuscripts with killer bunnies.  These are called drolleries or grotesques and they often decorated the margins of Medieval texts, illustrating the world turned upside down etc.  







To learn more about killer Medieval rabbits check out this blog by Sexy Codicology, or this one on the symbolism of rabbits. Finally, enjoy the beast of Caerbannog.
