Women, Glorious Women

For years a collection of paintings had adorned the walls of Katharina Rapp’s home and studio.

Then one day, when she reclined on her sofa and sank into a daydream, her former creations looked at her with entreating eyes, begging her to release them from their two-dimensional existence.  They wanted to come to life.

She simply did not have the heart to refuse their ardent wish, and that’s how Women, Glorious Women was born.

The characters trapped in her paintings were set free at last.

Miss Rapp refuses to take any responsibility, however, for their outlandish shenanigans.

This is a collection of sixteen charming stories, complete with colour plates.  Each story is accompanied by the painting that inspired it.  A delight from beginning to end.
