Foucault's Pendulum hangs at the Pantheon in Paris, and here, on the right-hand page. It's attached by a thin gold thread between the page and the cover paper; the weight is a penny covered on both sides by a gold paper disk. I learned from this page never again to attach loose things on the right, since it's then hard to turn the page. My photo of my scrapbook page - The Pantheon, Paris, 2009.
