Sorted Books: It's All in the Details
As an addendum to my last post on "design solutions for storing and showcasing books in your home," I give you artist Nina Katchadourian's Sorted Books project. An ongoing project since 1993, Sorted Books is a great example for utilizing a collection of books to make an artistic statement. The idea is simple: cull through your collection of books, pulling particular titles and grouping the books into clusters, so that the titles can be read in sequence, from top to bottom. I've always believed that inspiring design is all in the details, and taking the time to create interesting statements in this fashion is a prime example. I'm in love with this idea.
