Some stories we’ve been reading this week:
- A photographer discovered Abstract Expressionists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner’s recipes in the house they once occupied. More than 50 recipes scribbled by Pollock, Krasner, and Pollock’s mother have been released as a cookbook.
- Lonni Sue Johnson was a popular illustrator whose work was published in The New Yorker and The New York Times before an attack of viral encephalitis left her with severe amnesia, unable to recall what happened five minutes earlier. Yet she continues to draw, and researchers are now studying her works in an effort to unlock the secrets of the brain and creativity.
- Poor King Tut – it was only two months ago that we told you that his beard was torn off and hastily glued back on, and now his chair, sarcophagus, and two other artifacts have reportedly been damaged.
