Well now I can’t decide if I’m in the mood to read a good book, or just to stack a whole bunch of them into beautiful piles! This is the work of American painter Jordan Buschur. Here is a little snippet about her process:

“I begin the paintings by creating an installation of books, photographing it, and then painting from the photographs individually or collaged together. The books are often piled, jumbled, and stacked. Through the act of painting, the arrangements become precarious, or the books larger than life- in each scenario the books are located just outside of reality.”
