Selfie of drunk medieval decorator
This is an unusual image, in more than one sense of the word: it is a rare example of a selfie made by a person who decorated medieval books; and he is drinking on the job. Check out other selfies from medieval times - and the story behind them - in my new blog post: Medieval Selfies.
