Government drone by day and book lover and geek girl by night!
I have to say that this was a really one of a kind book to get. I bought this last year at the National Book Festival and was intrigued by it once I took a look inside. The graphic art pops and the stories are wonderful. I actually wanted even more information than I got once I got done with this.
I would say that you may want to read this over a couple of days/months. Trying to read it straight through like a book doesn't work. The table of contents that is included will allow you to jump around too. Some of the women that Bagieu goes into our queens, an empress, I think my favorite story was about Giorgina Reid, a lighthouse keeper.
The writing was great and to the point and the graphics were wonderful.
There is no epilogue per se, but Bagieu does a strip that shows her life and how her comics became a book and how she left Paris. Very cute.
