A finely bound set of first editions of Hofstadter’s Pulitzer Prize winning GEB: An Eternal Golden Braid, and I Am A Strange Loop. In GEB Hofstadter theorises on intelligence and consciousness through an exploration of common themes of mathematician Kurt Godel, artist M. C. Escher, and composer Johann Sebastian Bach. I Am A Strange Loop further develops the central message of GEB, examining the concept of a strange loop to explain the sense of “i”. Signed bindings by Karen McGuire.
