The modern world can get messy. Fortunately, Swiss artist Ursus
Wehrli is a man of obsessive order, as he demonstrates with
eye-catching surprise in The Art of Clean Up. Already a bestseller
in Germany, this compulsive title has sold more than 100,000 copies
in less than a year, and the fastidiously arranged images have
garnered blog love from NPR, Brain Pickings, swissmiss, and more.
Tapping into the desire for organization and the insanity of
ber-order, Wehrli humorously categorizes everyday objects and
situations by color, size, and shape. He arranges alphabet soup
into alphabetical order, sorts the night sky by star size, and
aligns sunbathers' accoutrements--all captured in bright
photographs sure to astonish even the pickiest of neat freaks.
