The Game and Playe of the Zombyee

Behold this image from the 15th century, reprinted on 11 x 17 inch 100lb paper. Astonish your friends with this description:

This image is from The Game and Playe of the Zombyee, a book published in the 1470s by English printer William Caxton. Thought to be one of the first books ever published, the guide is an allegorical look at social structure and the living dead; in this woodcut we see a group of clerics attempting to confront a zombie who has dismembered and begun eating a member of the royal family.
