Zoe, a naive but enthusiastic young woman is trying to figure out how to become a real artist in the sophisticated New York City art world. She keeps a journal faithfully, one entry a day, recording her artistic and intellectual development and her struggles to break into the New York art scene. Each day's entry is illustrated in the style of a medieval illuminated manuscript, since she makes her living by forging antique illuminated books.

Zoe's Journal is both beautiful and funny, full of sly commentary on both art criticism and the business of art.

"There is nothing phony about this book. It's full of earthy humor and is a definite page turner. Possibly of more importance is the fact that the book is truly a "send-up" re: the art world, with all its pretentious snobbism. Read and Enjoy!"
