Found - Retro Reading

Oh this is so fun! I want to do this with my books - sort them by colour! Or, I should just save myself the trouble and buy a rainbow of volumes from Retro Reading!

The books are pretty but I had to giggle at the one title: "Parent Effectiveness Training." :-)

Gorgeous! I've thought about sorting my books by colors, but these beauties really pop & shine!

Ah, ONE DAY, when I actually have enough book shelves to put them on I fantasise about displaying my books this way!!. I think though that my largest colour grouping will "multi"!

I sorted my books by color, but I have so many contemporary paperback books and so few old hardbound books that it looks rather messy. :(

This is one of those places when the bibliophile and the designer in me collide.

One side screams, "WHAT? File them by COLOR? Are you MAD? How on earth am I supposed to find ANYthing that way? Fer Chrissakes, I thought you loved ideas and words, how shallow can you get?!"

The other side screams, "Books are a nightmare! They take up entire huge tracts of solid real estate and distract the eye with too much pattern and detail! How can you POSSIBLY have a serene, calm, and design-sensitive space when you have too many BOOKS in the joint, be REASONABLE!"

I have to admit, the bibliophile usually wins.

Sometimes I don't know how to order my books. If besides I have to do by color... I'll go crazy! But it's a nice idea :)
