For the love of Children's Books


Just when you think it's a cold day, or a grey day, or an uninspired day, you remember that thousands of small books with colorful illustrations and silly little stories exist.


And then you realize other people color code their lives and it doesn't make you feel quite as compulsive for feeling the need to color code your own.


And then you find illustrations like the ones by NY based artist Jane Mount who custom paints and makes prints of our most ideal bookshelves. My pick-why children's books, of course. This reminds me of the built-in window shelf I had as a child, and the many late nights of hiding under my blankets with a flashlight entranced by pages and pages of drawings and text. And then you remember, life is fantastic because things like this.
