Have you ever seen Jane Mount’s ideal bookshelf artwork? In her own words she paints “portraits of people through the spines of their favorite books: the ones that changed your life, that defined who you are, that you read again and again.” Don’t you love that?
I thought of her work as I was rearranging my shelves this weekend. I’m a complete book nerd and my shelves are overflowing, but these are a few of my favorites. It’s always a bonus when a book is as aesthetically inspiring as it is enjoyable to read.
So what would you include in your bookshelf portrait? Is there a book that changed your life, defines you, or that you read over and over again? Personally, I’m not sure I have a good answer to that question yet!
