Arranging books by color

My book case / Bank advertisment

Phil Shaw 3x
It was not my own idea, but from the first time someone suggested placing books by color seemed a good idea. To start with it is esthetic, it is easy to place and it makes easy to find at a home level. I place my books within a mix of theme, size and color and I can find them very fast. Actually I apply the same system for clothes and objects I even have a cabinet in the kitchen mainly with yellow packed products.
The artist Bill Shaw makes beautiful, perfectionist and interesting photo works on books. He plays widely on the colors, titles, themes. Most of them are very witty, but personally I don't think I want to add a visually busy image to my walls.
More photo's to come.
