A rainbow of books

While browsing around today I came upon a flick’r group called Rainbow of books. Organizing one’s books by colour probably is not the most efficient way if you actually would like to find a specific book, but it certainly is one of the most beautiful ones.

Look at this amazing picture of chotda’s bookshelf:

And check out all her other photos once you’re there. But make sure you have some time on her hands, you won’t be leaving her flick’r site any time soon.

  1. I’ve done this before (love to rearrange), but I always return them back to alphabetical by author. I know they look lovely (especially chotda’s), but it bothers me that books by one author aren’t all clustered together. I’m so OC. 🙂


  2. What a great idea, thanks for pointing it out. I’m always curious about how folks arrange their treasured possessions. I tend to organize my shelves by topic: sports, Jewish theme, trips I’ve taken, etc.


  3. Wow, those pictures are really cool. I mean, I’d never be able to arrange my library by color (size, perhaps. Publisher, done before. Color? I guess its day will come…). I’d go crazy not having sequels next to each other. Plus, I’d get super confused, mostly because most of my books are multicolored. Still, as anti-efficient as it may be, it’s pretty awesome. Thanks for the link.


  4. thank you for linking to my photo. you can actually post the photo on your site (and many others on flickr, including most of mine). just look for the copyright information in the right hand column; if it says “some rights reserved” it’s likely to carry a creative commons license. follow the link and you’ll see how you can post the photo for free.
