Ideal Bookshelf: an ongoing art project

My friend, Emily, just messaged me that I had to look at Jane Mount's new ongoing project "Ideal Bookshelf". I am so glad she told me about these beautiful, literary paintings. The best part about each piece is that she bases the book spines off of pictures you send her of the actual books sitting on your bookshelf. It doesn't get more personal than that.

As a pretty avid reader, my life is inspired by the books I read. I would love one of these to remember and capture those "life-changing" books.

Below is the link to her site. These would make fantastic Christmas gifts. I already have a couple of people in mind who would LOVE to get one!
