Selection and order was dictated in part by the color of the spine, so you shouldn’t really draw any conclusions from the fact that some books/authors are included and others aren’t. And just in case you were wondering, I do have the other volumes of Gödel’s works and PM.

How funny…I was wondering what order you used to place the books and if you had the other Godel volumes and was going to ask…but then I read the whole blog post and I got the answer to those questions…So, all I have to say now is Nice Looking Site!
You might also be wondering: how did he get the tops of these books to line up horizontally, when they’re obviously of varyingt height? Answer: take the picture upside-down.
That’s clever! But wait…was the camera upside down or the books? The books, right?
That’s a spatial reasoning puzzle for you!
I hadn’t noticed any change as I just read you in RSS land, but very funky banner!!!
