"I have already bought 2 copies of this as potential gifts but have already decided to keep one for myself as it’s so great. It’s a beautiful idea, a follow on from Birchall’s earlier book Photograph Converted into Base64 Code, which can really only be read as a visual form. This time he worked with Morse Code society members, and alongside the printed book is a 44 hour audio version, which as he says “if you used as your ringtone, you’d be the coolest person in town”. And it’s only £10, a perfect gift I would say!"
