Review

“Bibliophile is a coffee table–worthy collector’s item that the bookiest of book nerds (me! me! me!) can delight in. Jane Mount, known for her ‘Ideal Bookshelf’ prints, delivers an illustrated peek into famous bookstores, portraits of top authors’ pets, best-in-genre bookshelves and famous fictional meals, among many more literary bits and bites I can’t wait to dig in to.” —Canadian Living

“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

“Each page in Bibliophile will have you swooning. Illustrator Jane Mount brings her unique design aesthetic to book covers, bookstores, author profiles, and other fun inclusions like a round-up of writers’ pets and personality quizzes. Bibliophile is a visual ode to the literary world.” —Refinery29

“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

“Bibliophile is a tribute to the written word…the perfect addition to any serious book-lover’s shelf.” —Parade

”As a ‘shy, dorky kid with few friends,’ Mount turned to books and fell in love with them as physical objects. They also became her muses and she began drawing covers, hundreds of which she offers here, a testament to her abiding affection.” —The New York Times Book Review

“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

“This quirky, whimsical and just plain fun ‘illustrated miscellany’ will be a welcome addition to any bookshelf—although it’s more likely to be off the shelf, thumbed through and smiled at, as one says, ‘Oh, I need to read that book!’ ” —USA Today

“This hardcover title by Jane Mount will delight book lovers. The inspiring compilation surprises with beautiful and whimsical illustrations that peek into beloved bookstores, re-create famous fictional meals and challenge with literary quizzes.” —the Seattle Times
