Annoying: page 237 through 240 are shuffled in my print of The Lifebox, the Seashell and the Soul. Though not entirely surprising: the crumbly paper was a indicator for a sloppy edition. Maybe it is a collector’s item now. Mail me and you can have it.
I bought it about ten years ago, and recently reread Rudy Rucker’s The Lifebox, the Seashell and the Soul It is a very interesting book, although smelling odd here and there. Lees verder “Sloppy Lifebox print, great read from Rudy Rucker”
Sydney Padua wrote and drew the graphic novel / graphic documentary book The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage (see also here).
These type of wonderful books I am convinced will never be replaced by ebooks. Sydney Padua wrote a beautiful graphical novel or documentary (it’s actually a new type of book) about Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace Byron, the world’s first inventor respectively programmer of the computer.
Padua is an illustrator and documentalist, and has created a piece of art with this comic style documentary. Lees verder “Thrilling footnotes in Science History: Lovelace and Babbage illustrated”
