A star-studded line-up of writers, artists, designers, musicians, and chefs discuss their favorite books, with irresistible paintings by artist Jane Mount.

The books that we choose to keep--let alone read - can say a lot about who we are and how we see ourselves. In My Ideal Bookshelf, dozens of leading cultural figures share the books that matter to them most - books that define their dreams and ambitions and in many cases helped them find their way in the world. With colourful and endearingly hand-rendered images of book spines by Jane Mount and first-person commentary from all the contributors, this is a perfect gift for avid readers, writers and all who have known the influence of a great book.


"The artist Jane Mount has been creating bookshelf portraiture, documenting the contents of private collections in charming gouache-and-ink paintings."
