My Ideal Bookshelf

"My Ideal Bookshelf" by Jane Mount and Thessaly La Force

In "My Ideal Bookshelf," readers of every walk of life give us insight into what books would sit on their ideal bookshelf. Artist Jane Mount and Editor Thessaly La Force do a great job of making us see the titles on the shelves. Each page of the book is filled with hand drawn illustrations of book spines chosen by the contributors, which include Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Chabon, Alice Waters, James Patterson, Jennifer Egan and Dave Eggers among others. There are many different titles featured in the book, as evidenced by the eclectic mix of contributors. The last page of the book is blank for the reader to start dreaming of their own ideal bookshelf. Enjoy!
