King Cnut

Jonny Wan had created an illustration of King Cnut for Penguin as part of their "monarchs" series. "Cnut, or Canute, is one of the great 'what ifs' of English history.

Stretching his authority across the North Sea to become king of Denmark and Norway, and with close links to Ireland and an overlordship of Scotland, this formidable figure created a Viking Empire at least as plausible as the Anglo-Norman Empire that would emerge in 1066."

Humans?

David De Las Heras has depicted a curious portrait for La Maleta magazine accompanying an discussion 'What Makes Us Human?' Eight academic disciples of different genreations convened at The European School of Humanities to discuss. They cited that the evolutionary success of humans is surely "a mixture of innovative features, intellectual capacity, curiousity, flexibility, adaption and socialisation, that requires an approach from different points of view." A very wise start to the day indeed!
