We are so excited about My Ideal Bookshelf, the brainchild of artist extraordinaire Jane Mount and our friend (and founding Daily editor!) Thessaly LaForce. The premise is this: Jane painted the favorite books of more than a hundred fascinating people from all walks of life, and Thessaly interviewed them about literature they love and how it shaped them. Check out the video, where Jane paints Thessaly’s bookshelf.
