Palindromes sit so nicely on the page, pleasing to the eye. It’s a nice number 212 – binary, yet a trio, two big ones embracing a small one, mirror image, backwards forwards, inverse reverse, perverse … whatever symbolism you find in that little symmetrical abstract representation of numbers. My favourite English palindrome is ‘Madam’.
