{The stunning front/back cover of Well-Read Women, new from Samantha Hahn}

You may recall that a couple of weeks ago I posted about the stunning work of my friend Samantha Hahn, and I am so happy today to write about her work again — this time a new book she’s published with Chronicle called Well-Read Women. The book is a collection of FIFTY portraits from literature’s most legendary female characters (along with stunning hand lettered quotes), including the likes of Daisy Buchanan, Clarissa Dalloway. Anna Karenina, and Nancy Drew. I adore this book and think you will too. To quote my very own blurb on the back of the book: “Richly illustrated and exquisitely hand-lettered, Well-Read Women is the perfect convergence of literature and art–and a wonderful gift for any passionate reader. I have devoured it already several times over.” (It’s true.)

I’ll leave you here with some of my favorite spreads in the book. You can get the book here or at your local bookstore.
