Bret Victor Bookshelf Transcribed

I love examining other people bookshelves. Photos of bookshelves are great too. Bret Victor published a photo of his books, taken by May-Li Khoe. One of the best i’ve ever seen. Who would doubt.

So i decided to dive in and transcribe that photo to the list of books. Almost 600 titles. From comics to history of math, from information design to history of numbers and notations, from physics to biology. Ah!

Be careful, this list could blow your 2016 reading list.
