This completes an unplanned trilogy of letters in the LRB, all involving some quirky science history. You can read the three letters on my website at: http://richardcarter.com/tag/lrb+correspondence/
“You feel as if you're going to fall; fall upwards, up into the stars. Your brain reels. Upside-down vertigo. Invertigo.”
For Darwin fans everywhere, with members in 92 countries !
The Friends of Charles Darwin were founded in 1994 to campaign for the depiction of their hero, Charles Darwin, on a Bank of England bank note. The great man finally appeared on the new £10 note in November, 2000.
Due to popular demand, we're still taking on new members. So if you can truly say "Charlie is my Darwin", and you'd like to be able to write the letters FCD after your name, why not join us? It's free!
The Friends of Charles Darwin is run by +Richard Carter, FCD.
