February 17th 1600: Giordano Bruno executed

On this day in 1600, the Italian friar, astronomer and philosopher Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for heresy. Bruno’s ideas were controversial for his day, but are now hailed as precursory to modern scientific understanding. Bruno proposed the concept of an infinite universe populated by other intelligent life and rejected traditional geocentric astronomy. He agreed with Copernicus that the planets revolve around the Sun, but expanded on this by suggesting that the Sun is just another star. For these unorthodox views, which challenged traditional Christian ideas about the universe, Bruno was found guilty of heresy by the Roman Inquisition and burned at the stake. For his refusal to renounce his beliefs, Giordano Bruno is often remembered as a martyr for free thought.

“Perhaps your fear in passing judgment on me is greater than mine in receiving it”
- Giordano Bruno to the judges upon hearing his death sentence

Code: Realize: Dawn of the Taisho Era 

The cover for the 2017 Code:Realize calendar and a beautiful illustration. I’m really intrigued by the mix of east & west in the fashion. Here the characters step away from the usual steampunk clothing we’re used to seeing them in and have “traveled” in time to the 1920’s in Japan (or so it seems from doing a little reading up online). I’ve always been a fan of kimono and japanese fabric patterns, so naturally this illustration has become an instant-favorite: everyone looks great. Honestly, I would not mind seeing stand alone & full versions of their clothing!
