color coded bookstore

Do not adjust your monitors, my ninjas – those books should look like that. That’s right, you’re looking at a bookstore organized by color, thanks to San Francisco ninja Chris Cobb. Bay area bookseller Adobe Books [great name for a store thats arranged by color] allowed Cobb to reorganize their 20,000 books by the color of their binding for his piece entitled “There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World“.

My Ninjas, Please!

All that being said, you should all also know that this was 2 years ago, and the books have undoubtedly been returned to their original locations [or sold] – I just came across a write-up on the installation over at Superherodesigns Journal while cruising the internets for MNP content. So, sorry for the dated material [John from archidose can add this post to his investigation into echoes in the blogosphere], but enjoy the ridiculousness.
