Editorial Reviews

Review

"Exquisite." - Entertainment Weekly

"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

"Samantha Hahn has a knack for capturing the fluidity of a costume and the gloss of an eye or lip." - New York Times Book Review

"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

"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

"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

"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

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

"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

"Gorgeous." - Redbook
