The Art of the Book: TU's McFarlin Library Acquires a Copy of Eric Gill's "The Four Gospels"

Aired on Tuesday, March 4th.

Last month, it was announced that the University of Tulsa's McFarlin Library had acquired a rare, well-preserved copy of a large, handmade, and lavishly decorated book that's seen by many experts as one the most handsome illustrated books produced during the 20th century. Published by Golden Cockerel Press in 1931, "The Four Gospels" is a sterling example of the renaissance in artistry and craftsmanship in British book design/production that occurred in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.

But how might one do so today, in this ever-hurried, hyper-complicated digital age? Our guests have some answers.

"The New Art and Science Behind Enhanced Brain Performance" (Encore presentation.)

Aired on Monday, February 24th.

(Please note: This show originally aired in September of last year.) As we grow older, of course, our bodies become less capable --- and less reliable --- when it comes to doing all the things we used to do. But as our guest reports on ST today, one of the very exciting findings in recent medical research is that the human brain can actually grow (and get stronger) over time --- and a bigger brain means better memory, increased creativity, sharper concentration skills, and a more rapid speed of learning. Our guest is Dr.
