Each staff member at Changing Hands Bookstore in Arizona picked a favorite book and handed it over to artist Jane Mount. She made this beautiful painting of the bookstore’s ideal bookshelf. A copy of it hangs in the front window of the store. If you can’t get enough of these inked book spines, check out her book My Ideal Bookshelf, which features the beautifully painted bookshelves of literary, culinary, and traditional celebrities alongside interviews edited by Thessaly La Force. If you’re just jealous, you can ask Jane to paint your own custom ideal bookshelf on her website.
