Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany by Jane Mount

Staff Pick

Written and brilliantly illustrated by Jane Mount, Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany (Chronicle, $24.95) houses lists and illustrations of all things bookish. A booklover’s dream, there are book lists that cover mortality, short stories, sports, even “Technothrills and Cyberpunks.” Beautiful artwork maps books from around the world, breaks down the various parts of the physical book, and depicts the furry likeness of bookstore cats from Chilliwack to Baltimore. While undeniably lovely and fun, Mount’s work is especially endearing because it reveals that the book world does not lie solely between Chapter One and The End. Books build magnificent libraries, inspire film and music, and keep safe our favorite recipes and dishes. Mount, with her many lists and illustrations, does not hesitate to show this. What’s more, she lists Politics and Prose as a “Beloved Bookstore” on page fifteen. If nothing else, she has great taste. Gibs Ramm
