|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 watercolour 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 re-imagined for contemporary taste, with a cloth spine silk-screened in a graphic pattern, debossed cover, and pages that turn with the tactile satisfaction of watercolour paper. In the hand and in the reading, here is a new classic for the book lover's library.
New York based illustrator and author working with a range of clients including: the Paris Review, New York Magazine/TheCut, J.Crew, Vogue Japan, Conde Nast Traveler, Random House, Assouline, Abrams and Chronicle Books.
