My Fry & Laurie Scrapbook

As my Christmas gift to my online friends (and anyone else who cares to stumble across my postings), I have scanned and uploaded many of the articles from my Fry & Laurie scrapbook.

These articles date from 1988 to 1996, many are several-page articles, with a handful of snippets from magazines & newspapers. Some of the pictures may look a bit odd, but they should be OK at 100% display. I've resized some pictures so they don't look too strange from the scanning process. However, please note that many pages have little holes along the sides as the scrapbook was (and still is) a ringbinder :)

I'm planning on sharing these with the appropriate communities as well as posting here, so apologies if you come across this a few times! You may have seen some of these about the Internet before, but I hope you enjoy them. Merry Christmas!

You are the BEST!

The "Fry Goes up in Smoke" article made me squee, because it's the one where Hugh is mentioned as a newly minted father. Awww...

This is all quite lovely. Also, I have horribly misread "Americans Think All Englishmen Have a Butler (Daily Mirror)" as "Americans Think All Englishmen Have a Butler Daily (Mirror)."

Oh, heavens, I've only looked at a couple so far, but what a treat! And that "Hooray, it's Fry-Day" interview--is Stephen playing straight? Was that even possible for him in 1986, or did he just not want to frighten the under-sixteens?

Thank you very very much :) I am trying not to read all at once so I can keep the good things for at least a few days :)

Re: Happy Christmas
You're welcome! Happy Christmas!
Dec. 27th, 2007 04:30 am (UTC)
Ooh, I've just looked over all of the scans, and they're fantastic. Wonderfully disorienting, as well, for a twenty-three year old American who first encountered Hugh as a Serious Angsty Actor instead of an Upper-Class Twit (the GQ writer seems to have been pretty perceptive, though) and Stephen as the Anglophone world's favorite professor instead of the boy wonder of Queen's. And Emma Thompson being known as a sketch comedienne instead of a Serious Actress.
Dec. 27th, 2007 09:28 am (UTC)
I loved the GQ interview too, I always knew one day Hugh's talents would be there for the whole world to see.

Glad you enjoyed them all!
Dec. 27th, 2007 05:30 am (UTC)
ooh! What a neat little treasure trove. Thanks so much for posting :D
happy holidays!
Dec. 27th, 2007 09:29 am (UTC)
You're welcome, glad you like them! Happy hols! :D
