The Reading Woman 2018 Engagement Diary

by Various artists

The Reading Woman 2018 Engagement Diary by Various artists 120 pages with Wire-O binding and a soft cover with flaps

"The greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination"
(Elizabeth Hardwick)
The act of reading can create a whole world in which to lose oneself, and the reading woman navigates this world with the utmost grace. As captured by the artist, she is a beautiful enigma, an untold tale, a moment in time set free of its particular story.
 
This diary reproduces twenty works by renowned painters of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries — Renoir, Cassatt, Tissot, and many others — that take a quietly joyous look at the reading woman. Accompanying each image is an illuminating or amusing quotation on the subject of readers and reading. It’s a combination sure to spark your imagination as you read your way through 2018.
 
All of Pomegranate’s diaries are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and manufactured by an FSC certified printer.
