Shelved books, in and of themselves, can be quite decorative, but perhaps you’re looking for book-themed art that’s more… frameable. No problem.
It can include up to 22 books of your choice. All you have to do is send me a photo of the full spines of the books together on a shelf, large enough that I should be able to read all the authors, titles and publishers.
If you don’t have them all together you can take photos of them separately and I can combine them, no problem, If you don’t have the books at all that’s okay, too: I might have photos of them already and if not I can get photos of them from the bookstore; it just costs a bit more.
On her website, Mount explains the idea behind the “Ideal Bookshelf” project:
I paint sets of books as a form of portraiture: a person’s favorites (of all time, within a genre or from a particular period in their lives); the ones that helped make them who they are today.
Or, if you prefer black-and-white art, Postertext sells stunning images made from the actual words of famous works of literature.
The site promises new posters every week, and you can even request a poster based on a particular book.
