Well-Read Women

Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby Emma Woodhouse, Emma Nancy Drew, Nancy Drew Mysteries

When you’re reading a book, do you try to picture what the characters would look like? If so, then you’ll probably love this book that just came out: Well-Read Women. I think that Chronicle Books publishes some of the prettiest books and this one is no exception. It contains illustrations of 50 famous heroines from literature, including Anna Karenina, Daisy Buchanan and Nancy Drew, to name a few. All of the portraits were created by Samantha Hahn, a painter based here in NYC. This book combines two things I love, literature and art, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
