  • The Yale Law Library announces the exhibit, "And Then I Drew for Books": The Comic Art of Joseph Hémard.  It is curated by Yale's Michael Widener and by Farley Katz, "a tax attorney from San Antonio, [who] has built one of the world's finest collections of Hémard's works."  Katz is the author of "The Art of Taxation: Joseph Hémard's Illustrated Tax Code," 60 Tax Lawyer 163 (2006).  We borrow one of Hémard's illustrations from the Yale Law Library Blog.  Hat tip: H-Law.
