An original Shelf Portrait Book Painting.

I came across this iconic collection of well-thumbed Penguin books on a shelf in the reconstruction of Shackleton’s Hut in the penguin enclosure at London Zoo!

Oil on Canvas.

The painting measures 16 by 16 inches, and comes in a wooden tray frame.

Packed and shipped out in 3-5 days.


I feel privileged to be able to do what I love for a living, and to have others appreciate it. My book art work brings together my loves of painting, typography and books. I love to paint Bespoke Shelf Portrait paintings: clients gather their favourite editions together for me to paint. As I paint, a picture of their lives and loves grows across the canvas, across the shelf. Which books would you choose for your Shelf Portrait?
