there is nothing wrong in this whole wide world

{photo by heather}

i just recently came upon some photographs on flickr of an art piece called "there is nothing wrong in this whole wide world" by chris cobb.  for the piece, cobb and a team of 16 helpers spent one night arranging all 20,000 books in a san francisco book shop by color.  apparently the piece was only supposed to last for one week, but it was so popular that it was extended several weeks.  i wish i could have seen it in person!

the photos are absolutely gorgeous, and they inspired me to arrange my own little bookshelf by color.


i always thought it was kind of an eyesore in my living room, but i love looking at it now!  oh, and if you can't get enough of bookshelves arranged by color, check out the flickr group rainbow of books.
