Product description

Review

"Ever wish your your alphabet soup was actually legible? Your fruit salad arranged into rows? Maybe not, but there's something undeniably pleasing about The Art of Clean Up, a photo book by Swiss comedian and visual artist Ursus Wherli. Wherli spent two years putting everyday objects - flower, cars in a parking lot, needles from a pine bough - into meticulous order and then photographing them." - Janine Rayford, People --People

"What sets Wherli's book apart and maybe even above is innovativeness and the combination of sheer scale (we're looking at groups of people and entire car parks arranged by colour)and the before/after set-up. If only we all had the time, right?" --Dazed Digital

"Wehrli has gone to great lengths to create a world where the primary objective is neatness and it is one that I could quite happily live in." --Humans Invent

About the Author

Ursus Wehrli is a left-handed, broad-thinking, professional typographer. His first book, Tidying Up Art, is a visionary manifesto that took well-known artworks and put them back together in his more rational, more organized, and cleaner form of modern art. In this book, The Art of Clean Up, Wehrli extended his discerning eye into the physical world to tidy up common daily situations. He is currently working on sorting things that are normally too big to organise.

The book is exactly what I was expecting. I am very pleased - only flaw was I saw this in a shop before online and in the shop it was thicker, as in it had more pages.

Not as good as Things Come Apart. It takes the idea of lining up slightly in the wrong direction...

This book is great for anyone with a sense of humour. Ursus Wehrli takes photographs of everyday scenes and "rearranges" the contents into their component parts, all neatly sorted. I took it to work and the entire department has enjoyed looking at it and picking their favourite.

I will be buying copies for friends and family for upcoming birthdays.

A beautiful book which shows the beauty in order without taking it too seriously - there is definitely an element of self irony in it. I love to give this book as a present.
