Ladies and gentleman! We are excited today to present you with something very rare indeed: a glorious exclusive wallpaper by the esteemed Ms. Sydney Padua.
If Ms. Padua’s name doesn’t ring any bells, then the name of her comic—2D Goggles: The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage—probably will. If you need still more information, you could consult Jaymee Goh’s interview with Ms. Padua on these pages last year, or our reprint of a story about L&B making a great exhibition of themselves. But whatever you do, aquaint yourself forthwith.
One thing that Lovelace and Babbage fans are united on is the fact that there is not enough Lovelace and Babbage, so we were honored to be able to comission a new piece that you—yes, you!—can use to festoon your desktop or mobile computing platform. Sydney calls this piece “Beam Us Up,” for reasons that I imagine will become clear.
Note: You need to be a registered user on Tor.com to download the wallpapers. (Don't worry, that's free and quick.)
