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 ber-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.

About the Author

Ursus Wehrli is a left-handed, broad-thinking, professional typographer. His first book, Tidying Up Art, is a visionary manifesto that took well-known artworks and put them back together in his more rational, more organized, and cleaner form of modern art. In this book, The Art of Clean Up, Wehrli extended his discerning eye into the physical world to tidy up common daily situations. He is currently working on sorting things that are normally too big to organise.
Industry Reviews
"A surprise on every spread.... The book is a great example of how a compulsion for obsession can make for obsessively interesting art." - NYTimes.com
"At once utterly delightful and playfully philosophical." - Brain Pickings
"Brilliant.... There's a cumulative humor to these bright, sharp photographs, and a deep puckish cleverness in Wehrli's choices. It's the rare art book that provokes laughs, while still earning admiration for color and composition; it's funny and beautiful. " - The A.V. Club
"Organizers, prepare to swoon." - Fast Company.com
"The photographs are not only visually compelling, but they serve as a fascinating look into an alternative reality in which chaos has given way to careful geometry." - Cool Hunting
"Ever wish 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 Wehrli." -- People magazine
