Reading can stop time and provide an escape from routine, especially if the letter you’re reading is addressed to someone else! (See front cover: The Indiscreet Maid.) The reading woman is a complex story that has fascinated generations of artists. Some reading women turn to novels or verse, others to nonfiction. Some read for news of the world, others for news from a faraway loved one. All enrich their lives by reading.
This calendar includes works by masters such as Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Louis Comfort Tiffany. Well-chosen words on the pleasures of reading, from historic and contemporary female writers and readers alike, accompany each of the twenty images in this calendar.
