For women everywhere — heck, for men, too!

Let’s celebrate us in all our quirky, wonderful and beautiful glory! Happy International Women’s Day. The  images below are from a series of watercolors called “Women Defined” by a brilliant artist named Jay. I first saw Jay’s work while trawling the Internet, particularly from my godchild’s tumblog and a few others. And finally found the source, which I am linking here. Aren’t these images wonderful and empowering? And as she says in her blog, aren’t we awesome?

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!).
