The text of Enumerations. is the Note in which Ada Lovelace, mathematically trained daughter of Lord Byron, describes Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine. This first computer was based on Jacquard looms and the Note references a specific encyclopedia article on loom technology. The book is digitally printed onto unused computer punch cards from the Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico. The Notes were published in English in Scientific Memoirs, 3, 666-731, 1843. The Jacquard Loom, The Cabinet Cyclopaedia: Arts, Dionysius Lardner, 1831.

The trigonometry imagery is from Cyclopædia: or, An Universal Dictionary of Arts and Sciences, Ephraim Chambers, London, 1728. The trigonometry screenprints in the book were printed on vintage graph paper.
