notables: outline, signature piece

disposition: gift to Evan

After 95 puzzles, it was finally time to cut one with an irregular border.  This puzzle really called for it; not only does it look pretty cool, the background was boring as spit.  The source material was pretty depressing when considered as puzzle fodder.  Most of the months featured the same computer generated images (sometimes resized, sometimes rotated or mirrored) against vast backgrounds of uninteresting color.  The irregular border was the only way to go!
