“Each morning, under cover of darkness, Mahmoud M’seddi makes a special delivery to a distinguished Parisian address. As the 2018 winner of an elite competition to determine the city’s best baguette, he has the honor of baking fresh bread for President Emmanuel Macron.”
I make a lot of bread, and I approve this message.

“The battle of Til Tuba reliefs are among some of the great masterpieces of ancient Assyrian art. The movement and details are truly stunning. That said, the scenes actually being depicted are anything but easy on the eye.”
A really excellent description of how these pieces should be viewed in order to appreciate the history they depict. I was especially blown away by Brereton’s discussion of the sequential nature of the imagery. This is well produced and interesting.
