ideal bookshelves

I love this. Illustrator Jane Mount does these illustrations of her friend’s bookshelves. This friend reads the kind of stuff I like to read. Good taste, friend.

I discovered this a few days ago and keep coming back to it. Basically, they’re just little sketches of books on a bookshelf, but which books are put together forms a neat little picture of the person who reads them.

I want to find some way to work “what’s on your bookshelf?" into every job interview, essay, drinking game, etc. I do from now on.
