Beautiful books

bookshop, originally uploaded by natalieben.

I just found this wonderful picture of a bookshop in San Francisco that has been entirely rearranged by colour as a piece of artwork. It has been so popular that the display has been extended (or maybe they just can't face the re-arrangement job.)

The artist, Chris Cobb, calls the work "There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World". He said: "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."

Sounds facile, but the result certainly is beautiful, and what a great way to mix up ideas, throw them together and see what emerges.

Found at Superhero Journal.
