May the 4th be with you, Endpaper readers! In the past, finding a connection between journalling and the Star Wars films might have been difficult, but that has all changed with the recent discovery of the “Yoda Manuscript.”

Julian Harrison, curator for the British Library, made a very interesting find while browsing through a 14th-century French illuminated manuscript. Contained within the book’s pages is a rather familiar-looking figure – one with pointy green ears, a wispy tuft of hair and a body-covering cloak.

Stuart Freeman, the makeup artist behind Yoda’s look, has always said that he modelled the tiny Jedi Master after Albert Einstein’s wise visage, but it’s hard to deny the resemblance between Yoda and this strange green figure!
