The modern world can get messy. Fortunately, Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli is a man of obsessive order, as he demonstrates with eye-catching surprise in The Art of Clean Up. Already a bestseller in Germany, this compulsive title has sold more than 100,000 copies in less than a year, and the fastidiously arranged images have garnered blog love from NPR, Brain Pickings, swissmiss, and more. Tapping into the desire for organization and the insanity of uber-order, Wehrli humorously categorizes everyday objects and situations by color, size, and shape. He arranges alphabet soup into alphabetical order, sorts the night sky by star size, and aligns sunbathers' accoutrements--all captured in bright photographs sure to astonish even the pickiest of neat freaks.

Product Description:

Swiss comedian and cabaret artist Ursus Wehrli loves organisation in the extreme. In 'The Art of Clean Up' he arranges a bowl of alphabet soup, a group of pool-goers, a spruce branch and other elements of our chaotic world into neat rows sorted by colour, size, shape or type.

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
