Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany Reviews

  • Emily Davenport

    OMG this book is soooooooo beautiful. I wish I could eat it.

  • Janet

    Sheer perfection.

  • Dipali

    This book is perfect.

    I love this book and, no, you don't read it, the way you read a novel. For me it is a beautifully illustrated reference book that I will dip into often. At the core, the book has carefully curated lists of books on topics ranging from dystopia to romance to cult classics to kids books. The "lists" are illustrated stacks of the books in question. And then there are quizzes and illustrations of beloved bookstores. Did I mention, pictures of authors' cats and pets, recommendations of books by book

    I love this book and, no, you don't read it, the way you read a novel. For me it is a beautifully illustrated reference book that I will dip into often.

And then there are quizzes and illustrations of beloved bookstores. Did I mention, pictures of authors' cats and pets, recommendations of books by book people (authors, librarians, etc)? Looking for a list of books on sports or mortality or desserts, dip into this delicious book and you will find some great suggestions.

    Earlier this week I had the privilege of hearing Jane Mount talk about creating this book and answer questions about it. The author said her goal in writing this was to increase the size of people's TBR lists. Mission accomplished as far as I am concerned. It deserves a place on every readers bookshelf. And if you are reader who participates in one of the many reading challenges out there, you will find this an invaluable reference.

    A beautiful and fun book for book lovers. And great to share with the bibliophiles in your life!

    I was sent a copy of

    by my bookish buddy Katrina because I've been working with the publisher for my day job. This really is my sort of miscellany. Jane Mount is super talented – I have been coveting a bookstack print myself – and

    is full of literary facts, book recommendations, and bookshop spotlights, and it kept me entertained during my lunch breaks.

    Another absolutely wonderful book about all things bookish. Lists of course, classified into subjects, classics, sports, fantasy etc. I did pretty well on many of the lists, except for the genres I read little of, fantasy, scyfy. This is so much more than just lists though, it also highlights some wonderful bookstores, gorgeous libraries around the world, and the rooms some well known authors used to write their books. There are short bios or paragraphs of interest of somebody the authors precee

    Another absolutely wonderful book about all things bookish. Lists of course, classified into subjects, classics, sports, fantasy etc. I did pretty well on many of the lists, except for the genres I read little of, fantasy, scyfy. This is so much more than just lists though, it also highlights some wonderful bookstores, gorgeous libraries around the world, and the rooms some well known authors used to write their books. There are short bios or paragraphs of interest of somebody the authors preceeding the lists of the different genres.

    Beautifully designed, the pages are thicker than usual, some gorgeous illustrations, the book itself is navy blue with gold accents, a red ribbon for a book mark. A book to take out again and again. What can I say? I bought a copy.

    I'm a fan of Jane Mount's art (I even have one of her prints), so of course I loved this. Mount says in the introduction that one of her goals is to increase the reader's TBR list exponentially. I was skeptical of this because I feel like I've already heard of every great book out there, but I actually

    learn about a few excellent-sounding books from reading this! Obviously recommended for bibliophiles.

  • Amy

    Fun book; Jane Mount's illustrations are fab. It's cheerful and makes me glad to be a reader.
