Best thesis cover

Some on our side of the pond may not be aware that some across the pond have an elegant way of packaging their PhD theses as readable booklets. Invariably they have explanatory, but often earnest, cover figures that gamely illustrate the work within.

Now, I'm not a big fan of Futurama (more inclined to The Simpsons or, showing my age, The Flintstones), but I must admit to a bout of LMAO when I opened up a package containing this thesis generously sent to me by Carole Leguy.

Kudos to Carole (and Ana Soares, also credited) for their delightful (and eerily accurate :-) rendering of the vagaries of hemodynamical measurement; and to Carole's supervisors for allowing her scratch the patina of academic seriousness.
