    1. I absolutely loved this book! I loved how it was written so simply, yet covered Chanel's life. The artwork was gorgeous and together with the text, it makes the perfect little book. Excellent for a gift or just to keep as a collectable.

    2. The Library of Luminaries is a charming series of small, illustrated biographies of artistic women including Jane Austen, Virginia Wolff and Frida Kahlo, as well as this volume on Coco Chanel. In brief and succinct prose, along with whimsical illustrations, Mlle Chanel's life is told and her accomplishments rendered. This would make a great little gift for a fashion conscious friend and can be read in less than an hour. I received a copy of this book from the Library Thing's Early Reviewer progr [...]

    3. This concise biography of Coco Chanel is a good introduction to the life of the famous designer. It gives basic facts, but doesn’t have the depth of some of the other biographies of Coco Chanel. However, it’s still an interesting read.

    4. I loved this book and highly recommend the Library of Luminaries series of graphic biographies. Like the others, a quick informative read. This little nugget shares many stories about Coco Charnel, and successfully places her influence within the changing context of the many eras she lived in-- e.g. Belle Époque, WWI, WWII, and post war periods.

    6. A quick and fascinating glimpse into the life of Coco Chanel, especially for those not familiar with her life or work. Hopefully this book will inspire unfamiliar readers to explore a longer biography that expands on her many loves (human and aesthetic), and to view her fashions that sought to free the female figure from tight hourglass figures and the trappings of costume. The illustrations are appealing, but the lack of any photographs whatsoever strikes me as an odd choice for a book, however [...]

    10. This is an exquisite small in format with brief biographical facts about Coco Channel. The overall artistic design of the book is so appropriate as Coco was a renowned designer. The type of item one might display in their dressing area.

    11. More of an artistic tribute to Coco Channel than an actual biographical reference to her life despite the basis of this book being from valid materials. Beautifully drawn illustrations that pairs nicely to the words.

    16. Charming! I love this morsel of the life of style of feminist icon, Gabrielle Chanel. Well-sourced information given in little snippets with beautiful watercolor illustrations to accompany the text. I learned things I did not know about Coco Chanel, including famous stories we may have heard, but are anecdotal in nature. I can't wait to collect more from the Library of Luminaries. It is an exquisitely curated and inspiring little work.

    17. A great thumbnail sketch biography that gives a lot of interesting info that makes you hungry to read a more detailed story of a very complicated lady. The illustrations are very beautiful, and really convey a sense of the different areas of France that were important to Coco. The drawings also capture the Chanel fashion esthetic. I wish the publisher would make more of these about other designers, artists and historical figures.
