Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines

A treasure of a gift for the well-read woman, this collection brings together 50 stirring portraits, in watercolor and in word, of literature’s most well-read female characters. Anna Karenina, Clarissa Dalloway, Daisy Buchanan…each seems to live on the page through celebrated artist Samantha Hahn’s evocative portraits and hand-lettered quotations, with the pairing of art and text capturing all the spirit of the character as she was originally written. The book itself evokes vintage grace reimagined for contemporary taste, with a cloth spine silkscreened in a graphic pattern, debossed cover, and pages that turn with the tactile satisfaction of watercolor paper. In the hand and in the reading, here is a new classic for the book lover’s library.

  1. A gorgeous must-have handbook for women! This is such a beautifully crafted and thoughtful book. Got mine yesterday and I’ve already decided I’m giving a copy to every woman I know this Christmas! The beautiful details just blow me away. And I know I will refer back to it through the years, whenever I need a little inspiration or guidance…the kind only a classic literary heroine can give.

  2. Magical! I love this gloriously beautiful book. Samantha Hahn’s stunning watercolors and quotations from these wonderful classics are exquisite. They bring those characters back to life for me along with fond memories of these many beloved books. Magical!
