From Dover's Historic Costume in Pictures. Braun & Schneider
Frankish illustrations (noted as such in the book as 10th and 11th century) from a new acquisition on historic costumes. Love this period as the women sported long braided hair, so much more flattering than the severity of later centuries when wimples/veils covered the hair. Reminds me of the costumes in Hamlet, one of my (many) favorite period films!

Mab's brother Frick, demonstrating his own purfect napping spot.
He does have four legs, one is just "tucked" under.

One more Evelyn Paul
I'm delighted by the little squirrel and owl in the tree branches looking on at Aucassin, wounded, and cradled by Nicolete.
Illustration by Evelyn Paul, early 1900s.
