Receiving a Knuth Reward Check

Wait, what?

I received a Reward Check from Dr. Donald Knuth! It’s true. I reported an error in a book. And I got a check.

What For?

An error on the cover of “Things a Computer Scientist Rarely Talks About”. There’s a missing space between a comma and the word aesthetics, and I reported it.

Can I see it?

Sure!

It looks like this:
