Robert Sheppard at 60 An Educated Desire published a year ago

A year ago today (see here, here and  here) I was surprised at my 60th birthday party to be honoured with An Educated Desire: For Robert Sheppard at Sixty. (No getting away from it with a title like that.) The party was good. Above you can see me being given the book, and the one copy oddly found its way among the condiments, and also some evidence of the party's aftermath. Oh, and Rita. (The photos of revellers are not public documents, but Rita is a public figure!)

The book is still available from Knives Forks and Spoons here. It contains some wonderful textual and visual (and colour) work! Thanks again everybody, particularly Scott Thurston and Patricia Farrell.

The mathematically challenged will have trouble working out how old I am this year. Soon it will be somebody else's turn...
