I recently finished reading (& thoroughly enjoying) The Literary Ladies' Guide to the Writing Life by Nava Atlas. Beautifully designed, with glossy pages are packed with illustrations, vintage photos, quotes, insights and advice from twelve celebrated women writers like Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Madeleine L'Engle, Anais Nin, George Sand, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf.
It's not a book you need to read from cover to cover. It's the type of book you can dip into anywhere and read a few pages at a time.
This would a fantastic gift for a writer friend.
