If you’re fully hooked on wise women and hungry for more, check out my favourite coffee table book: SHE: muses, visionaries and madcap heroines. It pays tribute to fabulous women like Nina Simone, Marilyn Munro and Gloria Steinem. And because it’s from the pretty people at Kate Spade, it’s a delight to turn every single page.
