The book "Proofs from The Book", referencing Erdős' notion of God's book, which contains the most beautiful proofs, was published in 1998.

Are there any new proofs that should be considered for "The Book"?

While this is somewhat opinion-based, I think the voting platform in our community is an excellent way to rank the beauty of proofs.

    $\begingroup$ Each new edition has new theorems, the latest is from 2009, so new proofs are considered. $\endgroup$ – domotorp Feb 10 '16 at 14:14
