Wall Picture Hanging Know How Advice

I have a shelf that is 35lbs or less that I atempting to hang on the wall. Question is, I need to have the shelf be as flush as possible on the wall in order to keep the items that will be on the shelves from sliding/rolling forward. What is the best item to use on the back of the shelf as well as in the wall to help achieve the most flush hanging? Thanks!

Attaching the shelf unit to the wall STUDS will assure a flat/flush mount.
If items rolling off the front is a concern, add a small strip of trim to the front/top edge of each shelf.
