This week’s Coolest Thing EVER:
Artist Jane Mount has a collection of illustrations called Bookshelves. It’s a pretty straightforward idea. She paints portraits of people’s favorite books. You can buy prints of some of her paintings here – or – and this is the really cool part – you can have her paint a portrait of your favorite books by visiting her Etsy store. What makes it to be immortalized on your shelf painting?
In other (e.g. not as awesome) news:
Refrigerator magnet poetry without the refrigerator. Or the magnetism.
Mark Twain decided that at least 100 hundred years should go by before his autobiography was published. This cooling off period should be mandatory for politicians. Contact your congressman today.
Hey look at that, book sales are up.
