How the British Hegemony was launched

Got bored, so I played around with the book cover template in InDesign. What if Charles Babbage and George Boole had brainstormed together? And what if Babbage ditched decimal representation in favor of binary? And then went on to build the much simpler and cheaper Logical Engine? I think this would make a fun alternate history, one where *I* didn't have to build the damned thing because Babbage already did it 150 years earlier!
