At Cellardoor we love interesting words and beautiful things, so when the two collide we know we’re in for a treat! That’s exactly what you’ll find inside New York illustrator Samantha Hahn’s latest book, Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines.
She is well-known for her gorgeous watercolours, which have often depicted each season’s hottest trends and she’s put her skills to good use by creating illustrations of the literary world’s fifty most famous female characters.
The book includes the likes of The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan, Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre, Oliver Twist’s Nancy and the character behind Audrey Hepburn’s most famous role, Holly Golightly, each quoting a famous line from their respective novels.
Who’d have thought we’d be so jealous of illustrated clothing worn by fictional characters? We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy!
