Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color. The project is titled There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. They were arranged by hand over a 10 hour period, and he enlisted the help of 16 volunteers. Such beautiful results, they transformed the bookshop overnight.

Oh, it’s pretty. It drives me nuts, though. I look at it and just—it’s a bookshop. If you want a For Dummies book or something, fine. Eye the yellow section. Want something else? Something where different editions have different dust jackets and spines?

I just. I can’t. I want to be able to find something easily, and skimming along the spines of a shelf of red books isn’t easy. It’s just crappy.

Exactly. It’s pretty but it’d be hell finding anything.

Don’t worry! I’m sure they thought ahead and created an exhaustive searchable catalog with range and shelf numbers so the collection was just as accessible as it was beautiful.
