Our Sylvester 'Summer Reader' collection was inspired by the paintings of American modernist artist Milton Avery. His work celebrates powerful and positive femininity through paintings of the women in his life, who often have a book in hand. 

To celebrate Avery's 'bookish' woman, we've compiled a list of the KS team's upcoming summer reads.
