Hello. Just wanted to say thanks for your blog and posts. Some really amazing stuff. Are they all books you find/own, or are you getting the covers via other web sources? I'm a big fan of 'library music' and a lot of them remind me of library music record covers. Similar things going on, design-wise, and from the same era aswell as many of your choices. I can imagine you know the recent compendium book that Fuel published -'The Music Library'? Well worth a look if not. Anyway, thanks again and keep posting!

Cheers for the nice words. All the books are found in second hand shops and a few, this one for instance, are bought new. Scanning them in takes a while and is why the blog is updated so infrequently.

this is a great blog. thanks.

cover design on mathematically-inclined texts is hard to beat. i have a tiny collection that i picked up mostly due to my attraction to the cover and with every intention of reading...

i did, however, read 'a field guild to hyperbolic space'. amazing and inspiring.
