How many women artists can you name? From Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeffe, to Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Xenobia Bailey, this lushly illustrated alphabet picture book presents both famous and underrepresented women in the fine arts from a variety of genres- painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and more.

Endmatter includes photos, extended biographies and discussion questions for budding creatives and trailblazers.
