‘Beauty as method’ collection of Dirac papers published in Italy

The Italian physicist Vincenzo Barone has published La Bellezza Come Metodo, a handsome collection of papers by Paul Dirac on the great value of mathematical beauty as a lodestar to theoretical physicists. Graham has enthusiastically endorsed the book: ‘Barone’s collection delightfully showcases the mathematical aesthetics of Paul Dirac, a crucial aspect of his thinking about the way we should think about nature. Buonissimo!’
