Forget about the traditional spring cleaning on get on board to everyday tidying with 'The Art of Clean Up.' This quirky and book centers around the ordering of miscellaneous objects and scenes, from a bowl of soup and its contents to lounging people and their beach accessories. Although this isn't an entirely original idea, it has been executed on a larger scale than most other attempts at meticulous tidying.

Created by Ursus Wehrli, an artist and comedian from Switzerland, 'The Art of Clean Up' is a sequel to his last book 'Tidying Up Art Books.' Instead of carefully organizing famous art pieces, he has turned his attention to more mundane situations and items. By stripping certain scenes into neat piles, Wehrli forces us to look at our surroundings differently.
