Pretty academic library shelves

How pretty – a project that colour codes library books with partial spine labels shaded according to classification.

My favourite aspect of the colours is knowing a law library’s colour palette will be dramatically different then that of a Art & Design library. The colours are assigned to the subjects as a rainbow gradient since there is no such thing as 21 unique colours and the classification system is linear.

Wonder if I’d be allowed to do that here – would make looking at the shelves all day more fun!

  1. Unfortunately, they appear to just be an art project…but if you have some artistic people on board, maybe you could do your own version. The link in the post leads to more information and photos 🙂
