Yoda Found in 14th-Century Manuscript


Seems the force has been around much longer than we thought.  One might think some time traveling artist included the Yoda like figure to screw with us. The 14th-century script tells the tale of biblical Samson.
"The Yoda image comes from a 14th-century manuscript known as the Smithfield Decretals,"

The volume is also known as "The Decretals of Gregory IX with gloss of Bernard of Parma," and it was created in southern France between 1300 and 1340. Decretals, we learned today, are collections of papal letters that compiled decisions (decrees) on church law and doctrine.

How Big Is Big? How Far Is Far?

Sure it's a book for kids to visualize distance, weight and other measurements on this little orb we call earth.
How fast is 120 kilometers per hour? How heavy are 4 tons? Units of measure are abstract—until, that is, they are contrasted with other quantities. The entertaining juxtapositions in How Big Is Big? How Far Is Far? make dimensions and measurements more comprehensible for children.

The book features amusing comparisons that make units of length, distance, weight, speed, volume, and time easier to grasp. The Queen of England’s crown, for example, weighs more than 100 portions of cotton candy. It would take eight days of travel in an elevator through the Earth’s center to reach the other end. When the world’s oldest living tortoise was born, there were no electric lights, telephones, cars, or airplanes.

The Daily Artist

I buy many Moleskine sketchbooks that are not worthy of my art. In frustration I rip my pages at times and make a mess out of the books.
