Custom Paintings & Prints

Want your very own Ideal Bookshelf? The books that changed your life, that defined who you are, that you read again and again! Record who you are at this particular time in your life, like getting a tattoo but less painful. Or maybe you'd like to give someone else theirs? Perfect for a birthday or first anniversary (paper!) gift, or for father's day, graduation, or whenever else you want to celebrate how much you love who that person is on the inside.

We now have three options for this, depending on your price range.

The first is a custom original PAINTING (see the options below) that Jane Mount makes by hand just for you, in gouache (an opaque watercolor paint) and ink on Fabriano paper. You can choose how many books to include and what size you'd like it to be, and then send us photos of any books we don't already have. They start at $280 + shipping and usually take 6-8 weeks.

The second is a custom PRINT. You pick up to 10 books FROM OUR LIST, and then Jane arranges them (from images she has already painted) to create a single archival print in an edition of 1 on Canson Arches paper, just for you. These start at $150 + shipping and take 2-4 weeks.

Finally, you can choose to have Jane paint just one book, your favorite of all time, and frame it in a nice white frame. These are $80 + shipping and take 2-4 weeks.
