Review

"Gorgeous...exquisite in every way.... I can't take my hands off of this book - I seriously love it and will definitely be buying copies to give to my friends" -- Decor8

"Absolutely stunning." - Bust.com

"Samantha Hahn's lush and dreamy illustrations capture the hearts of literature's most adored heroines. They're all here-Clarissa Dalloway, Dorothea Brooke, Nancy Drew-and each one is drawn so magnificently that their authors would rejoice as we rejoice, and tear the pages from this book to hang on their walls." - Emma Straub, author, Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures

"Samantha Hahn's exuberant watercolors paired with sharply chosen quotes feel at once nostalgic and modern, stylish and genuine. All qualities befitting the complex women she renders." - Stella Bugbee, editorial director, New York magazine/thecut.com

"These women are important. They illuminate the world. So read, read, read their words. And learn what life is." -Maira Kalman, artist, author And the Pursuit of Happiness

"The perfect collection of our favorite fictional heroines brought to life in gorgeous illustrations by the immensely talented Samantha Hahn-it's destined to become a classic and inspire readers and artists alike." - Christiane Lemieux, CEO, DwellStudio, and author, Undecorate

"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." - Lisa Congdon, artist and illustrator

"Gorgeous." - Redbook

"The portraits are breathtaking - sometimes tender, sometimes intense, always thoughtfully evocative of each heroine's persona and sensibility." - Brain Pickings

"Samantha Hahn's Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction's Most Beloved Heroines (Chronicle) is absolutely gorgeous and has inspired me to read some new titles. I'm still deciding which is my favorite spread; it changes each time I open this book." - LibraryJournal.com
