Library of Luminaries: Coco Chanel

Similar to the illustrated biography of Jane Austen, Library of Luminaries: Coco Chanel: An Illustrated Biography is a delightful biography that provides the main details of Coco Chanel’s life.  Again, charm prevails as delightful illustrations show Chanel’s life from childhood as an orphan to later success with plenty of love affairs along the way.

It’s a good introduction to the life of the sophisticated, brave woman who pared down fashion, gave us the “Little Black Dress” and quilted purses.
