I can just imagine how tickled I would have been at 13 or 14, in full francophile and feminine bloom, to have received a series of biographies of  great women in French — and in graphic novel format.

Naïve is a small independent French publisher of books and music, and they’ve come out with this series called “Grands Destins de Femmes.” Subjects include Angela Davis, Dian Fossey, Frida Kahlo, Agatha Christie, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Aung San Suu Kyi and Virginia Woolf.

Take a peek inside the Coco Chanel bio by Bernard Ciccolini and Pascale Frey.

You can get them at Amazon.fr and FNAC.
