The Ideal Bookshelf

April 9, 2010

To me, there are few things more wonderful than shelves full of books. While daydreaming about my next apartment, I’ve found that the thing I’m longing for most is a wall full of books, and thinking about all the different ways I could design my personal library. There are tons of people out there who also appreciate the decorating potential of bookshelves, but I was delighted to find someone who has discovered the artistic potential of them. Jane Mount is an artist who does a series of “ideal bookshelf” paintings, usually inspired by people she knows. They are really beautiful, and it would be wonderful to have one hanging on my walls one day. I especially love that little whale bookend!
