picture books arranged by color

I’ve blogged about those photos of bookshelves arranged in the colors of a rainbow–they are so beautiful to look at, but I couldn’t stand having my books that disorganized (imagine searching for a favorite book or author you want to read right now, and realizing you don’t know what color the cover of the spine is).

Well, Chad Norman has arranged his son’s Dr. Seuss picture books in the spectrum order–a task that both seems both more manageable to me, and more reasonable–all one author, and all picture books. It looks beautiful, to me–a  way to bring a visual pleasing effect while still enjoying the books. I can imagine leaping to do this, myself, if my books weren’t all in boxes right now, waiting for my move.

What do you think? Can you imagine arranging your books this way? Picture books, by just one author?

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
