The Colorful Library of an Interaction Designer (Juhan Sonin) / 20100423.7D.05887.P1 / SML

    Newer Older

    Believe it or not, I met Juhan Sonin three years ago on librarything.com, a social media site for book lovers. LibraryThing has an interesting feature which compares similarity of libraries and Juhan came out as in my top 3 list.

    Organizing books by color is definitely a first - I must try this some time!

    Compare our libraries - though clearly Juhan's is much bigger!

      An attractive idea. Virtually none of my books are in alphabetical order, so this might be as good a way as any to range them over the shelves. I've heard of older European libraries which were organized like this, also by size. I think, though, I prefer the more random contours of intermixed sizes. More lively.
