Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color.

I have done this. Mind you, I only had about 200 books. I couldn’t stand them being out of alphabetical order though, and put them back. It was epic though.
I did this. Have a photograph of it somewhere, back in about 2005/2006 in the Archives/Rare Books library for an installation. There were not nearly 20,000 books, but probably more than 5,000. It was painstaking but bloody amaaaazing when it was finished. Must.Find.Photo. (Putting them back is a BITCH)
