Momenticon by Andrew Caldecott (brief note)

Second paragraph of third chapter:

No attempt has been made at decor and little at comfort, but the technology is efficient. Its movement is smooth and the quiet hum of whatever propels it unintrusive. Matilda’s library is an old-world collection, and Genrich craft do not figure anywhere.

Seemed more obsessed with getting references to famous artworks into the book than in having coherent characters or plot. You can get it here.
