Cassandro in the Ring (The New Yorker‘s Photo Booth) Photos of Saúl Armendáriz, known to lucha libre devotees as Cassandro. Armendáriz is an exótico, an openly gay luchador who plays a drag-queen character and forgoes the customary mask in favor of a full face of makeup and coiffed hair

The Anglo-Saxon Work Calendar
The secular picture cycle known as the ‘Labours of the Months’ is found in two Anglo-Saxon manuscripts. The earlier of the two (BL Cotton Julius A. vi) was written and illuminated probably at Christ Church, Canterbury, in the early eleventh century. The later of the two (BL Cotton Tiberius B. v) was written and illuminated probably at the Old Minster, Winchester, in the second quarter of the eleventh century.

Illustration originally from Saxon and Viking, EK Milliken, 1949.
