We surround Lulu with art. We take her to art openings every month and many of her adopted family are artists or industry heads. She has a growing art collection, some created specifically for her, and she is not even one year old yet. One of our favorite pieces she received was Jane Mount's "Ideal Bookshelf 1" from her tatie Jen Bekman -- online art house 20x200's founder.
I had the chance to meet Jane last winter and we got to chat a bit about life, inspirations, and family. As portraiture, Jane has been documenting the bookshelves of others, capturing the idea of who a person is by recording what books they collect.
"Ideal Bookshelf 1" is a collection of Jane's favorite children's books. She feels the books she read as a child influenced her more "than books from any other time in my life." Lulu already has many of the books from the print on her real bookshelf. And we are thrilled that she will have this piece to examine and inspire her for years to come.
"Ideal Bookshelf 1" is available in 11" x 14" for $50 or 16" x 20" for $200. It is an original and charming gift to give to any child, small or big. Peeps with pending baby showers, you can't go wrong gifting this print!
