Artist Jane Mount creates the most clever paintings of book spines creating an "Ideal Bookshelf". I love this concept because like visual art, books can inspire us and play a part in defining our personal tastes. These lovely collections are the perfect gift, as the artist has painted bookshelves from various fields and genres - from books on cooking and fashion, to children's books and novels. The collector is able to choose from several prints or have a custom painting of his or her "Ideal Bookshelf".
Here are a few collections and you can view the Ideal Bookshelf here.
