BIOGRAPHY | HISTORY

The story of a fascinating couple.

Drawing on her lifetime passion for the Bloomsbury group, and Virginia and Leonard Woolf in particular, Carole d’Yvoire recounts the story of this famous couple. The union of these two exceptional individuals was symbolized in 1917 by the creation of Hogarth Press, the English publishing house that would go on to publish many famous authors.

One of those moments in history that produced a period of intense and prolific artistic creation – a concentration of freedom in which suddenly anything became possible.

A fascinating story told with passion, blending history with History and sprinkled with extracts from letters by Virginia and Leonard Woolf, illustrations (paintings, photos, etc.) and two short stories.

This Editor’s Pick is a wonderfully illustrated new book to mark the hundredth anniversary of Hogarth Press, beautifully recounting the story of two of the greats in English literature and told in a lively, passionate style, with letters and a short story by Leonard Woolf.
