Welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by on this Best of 2016 Giveaway Hop.
It took me some time to decide on a giveaway for this hop, because there were so many books I enjoyed in 2016, but finally I settled on Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines. This is a beautiful coffee table book that really brings to life fantastic heroines, fusing art and literature.
Here’s the blurb:
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.
Entry for this giveaway is via Rafflecopter, and is open to all (I will post internationally). Good luck!
