I’m late to the game on this one but have you all read In the Company of Women? If you’re shaking your head (especially if you’re a female), I strongly recommend you order one. This is one of those coffee-table books that you’ll actually want to read. This book is a lot more than just pretty pictures. Written by Design Sponge founder Grace Bonney, this glossy tome features the wisdom and advice from over 100 female artists and entrepreneurs. There’s such an amazing variety of women profiled in this book – from painters and poets to chefs and tattoo artists. The one thing they have in common: they’re all creative, working women. I read this book cover-to-cover and found each Q&A more inspiring than the next. The book itself is gorgeous (the photography is really wonderful), yes, but what’s inside is just as good. It’s a must-read – not to mention, a great gift idea for a girlfriend.
