Announcing THE NEW QUOTABLE WOMAN mini edition, coming soon to a book or gift shop near you!
This is a tiny book with pithy quotes from lots of wise women who have lived large enough lives for their words to rate being collected in a book like this. For me, it will be a nice portable portfolio since each and every illustration in it is mine, and most feature my "ladies".
The cover art is from feminist journalist Rebecca West's quote, "Life ought to be a struggle of desire toward adventures whose nobility will fertilize the soul." I immediately visualized riding an elephant through India, as that is my idea of having a grand adventure.
My very favorite quote didn't make this book, however, as the author is precluded by gender:
"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." Oscar Wilde
