Product description


"One of the season's standout gift selections.... Bibliophile is bliss for the book lover, from cover to cover." --BookPage

"Bibliophile is a tribute to the written word...the perfect addition to any serious book-lover's shelf." --Parade

"Bibliophile is an absolute gift to book lovers, covering things like literary trivia, bookstore cats, profiles of bookish people, so many recommendations, and guides to beloved libraries and bookstores from around the world." --Buzzfeed

"This whimsically illustrated guide to all things even tangentially book-related--from the most architecturally singular libraries to writer-owned bookstores and famous writers' pets--should delight fans of literary minutiae, who will no doubt excel at the Five-Word Synopsis Quiz." --the Washington Post

"Over the years Jane Mount has made a huge impact on the book-loving internet with coverage in just about every book and design blog out there, and there's good reason. Her artwork is heartening and warm, positive and book-celebratory. Her new book, Bibliophile, is a wonderful look at her work, and Mount takes readers behind the scenes of favorite writers' spaces and shelves, bookstores, and their literary cats. It's an airy and charming and beautiful book." --Fine Books & Collections

"Known for her colorful illustrations of iconic book spines, artist Jane Mount's new book is a vivid ode to the world of literature. Along with illustrated reading lists on subjects ranging from food writing to feminism, there are delightful drawings of beloved bookstores and libraries, and even games and puzzles to test your bookish IQ." --The Strategist

"In Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany, artist Jane Mount embraces all things bookish in an absolutely charming volume that will delight book lovers of all stripes. 'The goal of this book is to triple the size of your To Be Read pile, ' Mount writes in the introduction. Gorgeous illustrations, thematically linked and annotated book stacks, literary quizzes, recommendations from writers, editors, booksellers, librarians and more--lots more--guarantee Mount will meet her goal and then some." --Shelf Awareness

"Filled with fascinating facts and interesting information. Paging through it is like looking through your favorite bookstore: there are secrets behind every corner/page.... If you love reading about books and want a fun, light-hearted, and beautiful way to do it, I highly recommend Bibliophile for one more book to add to your bedside bookstack." --Geekdad

"Every bibliophile needs the beautifully illustrated Bibliophile by Jane Mount on their shelf." --Hello Giggles

"Bibliophile is an illustrated celebration of all things book." --Bustle
