  Wonderful Anamorphic Art | MetaFilter
Now, to be really self-referential, I'd like to see a photomosaic of a portrait of Escher that only gets revealed when reflected in a glass ball or a Mobius strip.
This is one of those little jewels lurking on the interweb that metafilter was meant to uncover.
Though not a collage, Rick Wakeman's No Earthly Connection had an anamorphic cover, and originally came with a piece of reflective plastic (or foil?) for you to roll up and place in the middle to see Rick ready to pounce on a keyboard.

 [No title]
OSM has determined to withdraw the final two-acre exemption published January 23, 1981, at 46 FR 7902, and to announce its intent to propose a revised two-acre exemption to replace the current exemption, which is published at 30 CFR 700.11(b).
OSM is taking this action in part because it believes that the January 23, 1981, rule may unnecessarily restrict the availability of the exemption to underground mines by including all land above underground mine workings in determining the size of a mine.
Comments relating to the substance of the two-acre exemption and to other issues not concerned with withdrawal of the January 23, 1981, rule will be considered together with comments received on the revised exemption that OSM intends to publish in the future.

 CNN.com - Technology - Radio passes 100-year milestone - January 23, 2001
Although Marconi had, over the previous five years, been sending messages over increasingly long distances, the January 23 transmission marked a milestone in the development of long-distance communication.
Not only was it the furthest wireless transmission ever made -- 186 miles (299 kilometres) -- but it also proved that radio waves could be transmitted across the horizon, something the majority of the scientific establishment had insisted was impossible.
The transmission of January 23, 1901, however, from Niton on the Isle of Wight to Bass Point in Cornwall, more than doubled his previous record, proving once and for all that distance was no barrier to the sending of radio messages.

 RIA Novosti - Russia - Power limits to be imposed on Moscow January 23
MOSCOW, January 22 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's electricity monopoly Unified Energy System (UES) said Sunday that it planned to introduce power limits in Moscow from January 23.
According to UES, the Sunday morning peak load on the Moscow power system reached 12,773 megawatts and the Sunday evening peak load was expected at 13,150 megawatts.
UES said the morning peak load on the Moscow power system on January 23 could reach 15,500 megawatts because people would come to work to unheated premises after the weekend and the evening peak on that day could hit 16,200 megawatts - a record high registered on January 20.
