what your shelves say about you

A new exhibition at Art Metropole in Toronto examines the personal library as artistic display. Are you an obsessive alphabetizer, a height clumper or, like me, do you just want to get the seemingly neverending piles of books off the floor so you don't trip over them on your way to the bathroom at night?
Artist Barbara Balfour presents Ex Libris, a series of digital prints showing books arranged by affinity to certain colours and life stages (among other things). Full info about the show at the link:
