Local sf artist chris cobb reorganized the books at the Mission District’s Adobe Books — by color. Over 20,ooo books created a continuous spectrum covering the whole store. The installation was up for over two months. Adobe Books employee Shi Ananda, who assisted in reshelving the books when the installation ended, noted that blue-colored books sold the most, brown books were most often stolen and red books tended to remain on the shelves. There were more white books in the store than any other color, whereas very few books were colored yellow. hmmmmmmmm.
