Connections Fact Cards
A set of cards based of the premise of Stevyn Colgan's book Joined Up Thinking - a book which highlights the connections and links between seemingly unrelated facts.
These images are linked through dates, numbers, sounds, places and people - from armadillos to Yuri Gagarin, from The Clangers to the Greek god of love and beauty.
The fact cards are accompanied by a book which includes the whole meandering tale of how each fact is connected to the other. Be warned the story takes many an odd turn and is rife with tangents.
