The Best of Bookish Art from Tumblr

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the bookish side of Tumblr — or Booklr, as some refer to it — is that there are so many great depictions of reading and books through art. Some pieces originate on Tumblr, while others pop up on Tumblr when they’re found through an artist’s website. We periodically share some of these great pieces of bookish art on the Book Riot Tumblr, but why not also do a round-up of some of the most striking and original pieces here, too?

While sometimes the original artist of a piece isn’t credited on Tumblr (which is one big downside of the social site), I’ve tracked down the artists for each of these pieces below to give credit where it’s due. Links go to the artist’s website or Tumblr, where applicable.
