  1. Lovely drawing, as ever. These numbery types are popping up all over the place aren’t they ? I have a neighbour who is a pure mathematician. I have asked him on more than one occasion if there are impure mathematicians. He just looks at me pityingly.

  2. Great stuff Carol. Saw it reviewed with Alex interviewed on BBC Breakfast.
