The Art of Books

If you are in the market for some reasonably priced art, you will definitely want to check out Ideal Bookshelf. Artist Jane Mount paints the spines of books in a creative, fresh way, with each painting taking on a different literary theme: cooking, travel, children and the list goes on. Jane also sells custom paintings with books of your choice—a lovely gift idea for the book lover, cook or child in your life. A book with Jane’s bookshelf paintings is being released November 13, My Ideal Bookshelf
