On my to-do list...



Chris Cobb, a San Francisco artist, did something amazing to a bookshop called Adobe Books- he arranged every single one of the 20,000 books by color. He project is called "There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World" and is based on a simple idea:

"Even though there is so much to be unhappy about in this world, we should try to create something amazing and beautiful and interesting despite all of the problems."

This happened back in 2004, but the idea spread like wildfire. There is even a collection on Flickr of people who ended up doing the same thing in their own homes. What an amazing idea.

Now I just need some more book shelves...
