Seeing the faces of literature's most memorable female characters - from Anna Karenina's icy grey gaze to Scarlett O'Hara's sensual open-lipped pout - will stir up treasured memories for every reader who has been dazzled by a well-written woman. Celebrated artist Samantha Hahn brings these bookish beauties vividly to life in 50 watercolour portraits and hand-lettered quotations straight from the lips of the leading ladies. Each is, in her own way, stunning. And Hahn's pairing of art and text captures all the individuality and voice of the characters as they were originally written. With a silkscreened cloth spine and debossed cover to recall the tactile appeal of vintage tomes and uncoated pages that feel like watercolour paper, this collection will become a new classic in every nostalgic book lover's library.
