The Post-it War

There's a war raging in the offices of Paris.

The Guardian reports:

...across the French capital, the summer has been enlivened by a corporate collage contest known as La guerre des Post-it (the Post-it wars). The battle is between presumably underemployed office workers who are devoting large chunks of their days to sticking thousands of pink, yellow, orange and green notes on their windows to recreate pixelated images.

The war draws heavily on the nerd canon — lots of video games, with a little Star Wars thrown in. But there are a few surprises in the mix.

The Post-it revolution is being obsessively documented at (of course), which gave us permission to post some of the pictures here.
