I came across a really great art project by Jane Mount today. It’s called Ideal Bookshelf and you can commission her to paint the spines of your favourite books, the books that changed your life and made you who you are today (a little bit) – or you can get art prints of other people’s ideal bookshelf. I love both books and art, so that’s pretty cool right? I’m definitely going to have one custom made if I ever have the money.
Which books would be ‘portrayed’ on your bookshelf? I think mine would definitely contain classics like Pride & Prejudice or Atonement, but maybe also some books I just loved reading like 44 Scotland Street.
