Watercolor portraits of fictional heroines

Holly Golightly, <i>Breakfast at Tiffany's</i>

I know I should be writing more original entries. I’m coasting, I know. But I can’t help posting about this article. It’s about the book, Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines. I would love to own this book! The artwork is gorgeous as is the depiction of the women. That’s Holly Golightly above from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I love that Nancy Drew is in here, too! Wonder who else is included? See more of the artwork here.

I’ll definitely be watching out for this in the bookstore when it comes out (and screw the book debt!).

There’s book art, and there’s extreme book art. Biografias series by Alicia Martin. (Click the photo for more books-exploding-out-of-buildings sculptures)

Sometimes this is how I feel with my book debt — that there’s too many stories that I just let fly out the window!
