Academented Christmas, day the third – literature

One for you, one for me…

The PhD student receives books in the mail and it’s practically Christmas Day already. This one comes with a lingering, musty aroma of basement, and in a fetching orange, true to the book’s birth year in the late 1970s.

Henry Lyons’ first special exhibition for the Science Museum took place in 1923 and the theme was “Typewriters”. Don’t say one cannot learn from this blog.

The book was then opened on a random page, and the PhD realised that all they want for Christmas is…
