Recommended Posts

Two recommendations:


1)  On Feb. 12, NOVA/PBS will air "Great Cathedral Mystery" about Brunelleschi and the building of the "Il Duomo" in 15th century Florence.  I've read a book on this...fascinating story.  National Geographic had an article this month introducing the subject and mentioning the upcoming NOVA.


2)  Today, "Tim's Vermeer" is released.  This is a documentary about a former software guy's obsession with how Vermeer might have painted.  It is going to be cool.  Includes Penn Jillette and directed by Teller.
