The other day it occurred to me: some of my favorite literary heroines — beloved for their spunk, intelligence, and heart — also have really great and memorable hair. Here’s how to get their looks!

This Carved Book Art Will Blow Your Mind

Artist Brian Dettmer uses surgical tools to carve up old encyclopedias, dictionaries, and medical journals. No materials are added and nothing inside the books are relocated, he simply carves the existing paper, one page at a time. When he’s finished, the vintage text and illustrations become intricate 3D dioramas with stunning detail and unexpected themes. This kind of stuff always gives me a headache, but in a good way, you know? Click through to see a few more examples of his work! [Karan Arora]

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to move to Paris for work? Amy Thomas was a copywriter in New York City when one day her boss offered her a dream gig writing copy for Louis Vuitton — in the City of Lights. Sold! But unlike other ladies who’ve flown across the pond, Amy wasn’t looking for l’amour or even la mode. This sugar-freak intended to use her time in Paris snarfing sweets all the best patisseries and boulangeries, which she lovingly recaps in her foodie memoir, Paris, My Sweet: A Year In The City Of Light (And Dark Chocolate). If an Air France flight is not in your budget, Paris, My Sweet should satiate any cravings you might have … at least temporarily. [$10.19, Amazon]
