If you’re looking for a super duper art biography of amazing woman, this is it. Published earlier this month, Rachel Ignotofsky has created another informative read celebrating women and their many talents. This is the third book in the series, others being Women in Science and Women in Sport.
The book is a collection of fifty inspiring, diverse creatives. There is such a fantastic range of individuals included, from photographers to composers, painters to architects. The book informatively shares with readers that creatives can include a great many roles and as described in the introduction “Everything around us has been touched by an artist.” “Art empowers and celebrates heroes.”
Each double page spread is complete with an illustration of a creative, alongside information about that person. As well as giving an insight into their work, readers can also discover a little about their personal life as well as information that is presented in bite size chunks around the main text. Women such as Beatrix Potter, Ruth Asawa, Norma Sklarek and Wendy Carlos are included in the book.
Timelines, statistics in art, art tools and sources of information are also included in the book giving readers an opportunity to further research.
The book would be a great addition to many a bookshelf including learning settings as well as a wonderful gift for young and older readers.
