Following on my last post, I’m very sorry to say that the ‘Dream Cabinet’ event at the Whipple Museum has been cancelled. If you were planning on attending, thank you, and I’m sorry!

The good news is that our art book, The Rules of Form: Sonnets and Slide Rules, is going to print next week, so I should shortly have it in my hands (whereupon I shall post photos). This is the Whipple Museum’s first art book, and I’m proud to have conceived of it and edited it. The book includes original artwork, original poetry, and two very different, very interesting essays – all of the contents is on the subject of, or inspired by, the Whipple Museum’s mathematical instruments. Contributors include artist Badaude, artist Cassie Herschel-Shorland, poet Lesley Saunders, and academics Joseph Crawford and Caitlin Wylie.

I’m looking into arranging a London-based book launch, so please stay tuned…
