A good start on beauty in chess

For those interested in this topic - and what problem composer is not? - there is a marvellous book by Jonathan Levitt and David Friedgood called "Secrets of Spectacular Chess". As far as I know, this is the only published book on the subject (although I think Hans Gruber wrote his PhD thesis on this topic). :)

I will get this one, thx.

May I had that novice to expert on studies have to look at the classic ''The chess Endgame Study'', a comprehensive introduction by Sir Roycroft.

By the way, I am listening to you all about 'obligatory' reading (please keep within the subject).
