One of the best books I have read in years.
The details on the punched cards in the appendix was of great interest. During my apprenticeship in the 1950’s (at English Electric), Iwas given a job to transfer data from cards like the IBM 80-column card shown onto a tape similar to the Colossus tape shown. This was used in an automatic drilling machine.

Love the illustration of Ada exhibiting imagination. Where/how can I buy a copy of that?

Wow! I didn’t expect how much would be added! Really an amazing work.

Though please don’t ever let the website go down. When the interview with the cat vanishes, the world will have lost a thing of rare beauty.

T-Shirt but no version with a pocket for my byro’s. No geek can buy a T-Shirt without a pocket for her/his birds can he/she?

Comment on Lovelace And Babbage, The Book by Robin http://sydneypadua.com/2012/05/05/lovelace-and-babbage-the-book/comment-page-1/#comment-3098 Fri, 25 Dec 2015 21:37:18 +0000 http://sydneypadua.com/?p=318#comment-3098 I recently purchased this book and currently thoroughly enjoy reading it at my Victorian fireplace with a nice cup of tea (China Yunnan, in hand-painted Royal Aynsley china of course). It’s the only way to spend Christmas. The footnotes and endnotes are as informative as the comic is entertaining, and the book itself is a lovely production of pleasing size and weight done in an appropriate style (I love the quality of the paper and the bright cyan colour that would have been popular with the Victorians).

It will take pride of place on my bookshelves right next to ‘The Cogwheel Brain’ by Doron Swade, which brings to life not only Babbage’s quest to build his engines, but also provides an account of the belated realisation of his Difference Engine by intrepid engineers at the London Science Museum.

I have the Lovelace and Babbage graphic novel and ever since you made that announcement about making it, I was so excited! The webcomics are awesome too and well drawn and very hilarious. The style of humor in your comics kind of make me think I’m reading a British version of Hark! A Vagrant. Also, you are one of my keen inspirations of becoming an animator(which is one of my dream jobs in the future) and a possible cartoonist. And also, you made Ada Lovelace my favorite historical figure and got me into looking up Google Books(which by the way is fantastic!). Keep up the awesome work and draw more comics! P.S: I hope one day Lovelace and Babbage will be adapted to a animated motion picture made by either Aardman or maybe DreamWorks. Totally would go see it!
