This is an amusing encyclopedia of lesbian cartoonists, published in 1995. It's necessarily a bit out of date, but it's still a handy and entertaining read. Each author has a sampling of cartoons in the book, and some also have long interviews and asides (like Alison Bechdel). The art varies from sketchy single-panel pun comics to longer graphic stories with detailed illustrations; there's a lot of variety in the collection, and it has motivated me to look up a few comic artists/cartoonists I hadn't heard of before. Always nice. It's best described as a sampler, but it's a well put together sampler, and worth reading.
