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 über-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.
