Well, this site is mine! I made it, I did all the programming for it, I did all the research and I don't think I've plagiarised anybody.
All images and extracts from books etc. are of course the property of the artist/author/copyright holder. This is a celebration of the jester in all his forms, and there is absolutely no intention to infringe anyone's rights.
All the wonderful people who've sent me info, pictures, and other assistance - thank you so much!
