John North, pre-eminent historian of medieval astronomy and other historical astronomy is around this week to give a few talks, including in my department - which means I'll have a chance to talk to him. I know his work, but haven't read as much of it as I would like to. I looked around to see what else he'd written today, and discovered that he has a new book out (well, in the UK) on Holbein's Ambassadors, a scientific and iconographical analysis.
