About meThe picture shows the Great Hall of the Austrian National Library which combines some of my things favourite: architecture, art, knowledge, history, museums, Vienna and books (The Austrian National Library's core comes courtesy of Prince Eugene, just as the Library of Congress was built on Thomas Jefferson's library; incidentally, these two are my heroes). Originally of Swiss stock, I am currently living in Vienna, Austria.
About my libraryThe entered books represent my interest in history, management and organization, natural science, literature and art (Missing are the German and French canon, some Italian and most Latin classics, whose future I see as e-texts as soon as a decent and cheap e-reader becomes available.).
