One of my oldest sources of visual inspiration on the internet (and one of a handful of early art/design blogs that inspired me to start Colossal in 2010) was Things Organized Neatly, an exhuastive catalogue of objects compusively organized just so. From toy collections, to artworks and editorial photography, the site collects thousands of images of neatly arranged things that have a near Zen-like impact on your brain as you scroll through the site.

Run by blogger and curator Austin Radcliffe, Things Organized Neatly has picked up more press and awards over the years than almost any other tumblelog. Now, after six years of publishing, the very best of Things Organized Neatly has made its way to print in a new book published by Universe, with a foreward by artist Tom Sachs. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
