Reading the Odyssey to My Four-Month-Old

I see a real connection between kids’ literature and epic poetry: they’re both meant to be read aloud.

This piece is collaged from the artwork of Steven Weinberg and an engraving series by Theodoor van Thulden (1632–1633), which were themselves made after a series of paintings by Francesco Primaticcio in the 1530s. Special thanks to the Rijksmuseum for help sourcing all of these images.
