Desktop Book

A compiled inventory

I used to have the bad habit of dumping a lot of stuff on my desktop. When the clutter became unmanagable, I would stuff it all into a new folder, thinking I would organise it later. At some point I realized I had folders inside folders going several years back. I wrote a small script, using Processing, that would go through all these files and output a PDF, displaying all the images and files. The final book ended up with 600 pages, featuring around 30.000 entries. I printed it on thin, phonebooklike paper. It ended up as a suprisingly good coffee table book!
