Quaint old chart in the Bulletin this month

I had to smile at the British Philatelic Bulletin this month, with its quaint chart illustrating an article about scientists in UK stamps. That must have been made with an extremely old version of Microsoft Excel! Now, there is nothing wrong with that - I still use Excel 97 myself when I have to use the official Office product - but the colours and style are just so, so old-fashioned! They are so quaint that they're almost cute.


I made the one below in about five minutes using Google's free Sheets on-line. perhaps someone might gently suggest to the Editor or the author that they might try a little harder to keep up with the times.
