"The Art of Clean Up" by Ursus Wehrli

    The modern world can get messy. Fortunately, Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli is a man of obsessive order, as he demonstrates in The Art of Clean Up.

Tapping into the desire for organization and the insanity of über-order, Wehrli 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' accouterments—all captured in bright photographs sure to astonish even the pickiest of neat freaks.
