The Art of Clean Up: Life Made Neat and Tidy

The Art of Clean Up: Life Made Neat and Tidy - Ursus Wehrli One of my booksellers LOVES this book. "Perfect for the anal-retentive." She's put it at the front of the store and is showing it to everybody. Visual artist Ursus Wehrli deconstructs the mundane and the everyday into neat rows of organization. A boy in a sandbox, a man in a ball pit, the night sky, a chicken coop (and many more scenes) are particularly arranged by color, shape, size or quantity to illustrate each element. Life isn't really neat and tidy, but it's fun to see one artist's attempt to make order where there usually is none, and thereby infer the insanity of making too much effort to control our crazy world.
