Gorgeous photography by Jean-Baptiste Huynh is being published in a series of books combining portraits and still-lifes. I've catalogued Japon and Mali so far; each book alternates portraits of a country's inhabitants, ranging from infancy to old age, with images of local artifacts.
And a giggle from one of today's books; didn't think a text on money laundering would get anybody here too excited, but one footnote DID grab my attention. At the end of a section on the motivations of Islamic Fundamentalist suicide bombers/hijackers, the author mentions the fact that they are promised that in heaven they will be rewarded with forty virgins "who will service their every whim". The footnote: "This is something that I find confusing. Instead of virgins, if you had a choice, wouldn't you ask for chicks with experience?"
Mounties (the author is a retired RCMP Commissioner) DO have the best sense of humour!!!! ***GRIN****
