“The Hunt of the Unicorn"
Restoring the seven tapestries known as “The Hunt of the Unicorn". Long but interesting article.
Digitally photographing the unfaded back sides of the tapestries in super-high fidelity and handling the files was a big problem. They got help from the Chudnovsk brothers. "The Chudnovsky brothers insist that they are functionally one mathematician who happens to occupy two human bodies." Update: TTL points out a cool video about the story.
