Terry Gilliam's daughter Holly is putting selections from the director's personal archive online as she organizes it.

Terry Gilliam's work — from Monty Python to The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus — is widely known, and a new blog appears to be chronicling the best of his personal archive. His daughter Holly has begun posting "gems" from the collection, which apparently spans most of Gilliam's career, in "Discovering Dad." So far, that includes pictures of film canisters holding early animation attempts, original illustrations from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, and cutouts for Monty Python and the Holy Grail animations.

The blog has only been up for a week, but it's already got some interesting pieces, and we expect more soon — Ms. Gilliam is currently looking through storyboards from Doctor Parnassus. Eventually, she's planning to put together a book and exhibition of the work.
