Bayesian Priors: Titterington Updated

Today I give you a modern take on Titterington (1982). I always thought these classic cartoons of Bayesian priors (and a posterior) could do with an update.

(priors: normal, exchangeable, ignorance, subjective, uniform, conjugal, truncated; posterior)

I paid an artist for these pictures, including the copyright so that I can now distribute them to the world. The full set is available on Figshare: https://figshare.com/articles/Bayesian_Priors/6432998
