Inside Michael Palin's Monty Python diaries

Michael Palin has made a significant donation of written archives to the British Library, which documents his literary and creative career, covering the years 1965-1987.

It includes over 50 ‘Python Notebooks’ containing drafts, fledging ideas and personal reflections relating to his Monty Python writing, as well as his personal diaries kept during the period.

The collection also contains annotated scripts of Python projects.
