“One thing I MUST express appreciation for is your manifesto. Afrosurreal really resonated with me. I felt like you were describing what motivates me as an artist, from when I used to report for the news media, to today, I feel compelled to look at the here and now through the lens of the past, without all of the guilt/anger baggage that seems to accompany such retrospection.”

It’s what the man said.
Collector’s item, maybe?
Get it while the getting’s good:
Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color. The project is titled There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. They were arranged by hand over a 10 hour period, and he enlisted the help of 16 volunteers. Such beautiful results, they transformed the bookshop overnight.
…and made it impossible to find anything at all.
we did this in our first apartment. i don’t have pictures anymore.
My human soul sings out at the beauty, but my bookseller soul just died a little. What if someone asks where something is???

Unfortunately due to the scourge of gentrification they have been pushed out of this location (to be replaced by a chain store somehow related to the Kate Spade empire!) they are moving to another corner of the Mission and you can find out more here:
