The papalest present

Aarne and Stiina gave me a most original and cool birthday present, a book of Pope John Paul II cut-out paper dolls! All the characters in the book represent the Pope, although the two on the right side of the cover are somewhat creepy... The costume repertoaire is very thorough: even the Papal Skiing Outfit is included (however the book fails to mention it's Latin name).

The book is from 1984, an era when the cardinals did not have to wiggle John Paul's jaws whenever the playback device utters a speech.
