I have just discovered The Persephone Catalogue, brought out by Persephone Books in London. They specialise in reprints of novels, diaries, poetry and cookery books, mostly by women and mainly from the early to mid-twentieth century. It just arrived in today's post and I haven't had time to study it carefully, but even after a quick flick through, I've spotted several titles which I'd like to read. Throughout the catalogue there are photographs of beautiful vintage fabrics whose designs are reproduced in the endpapers of the books. I will be placing an order very soon and for anyone else who's interested they can be found on http://www.persephonebooks.co.uk/ The catalogue itself is a work of art and will probably be my bedtime reading for the next couple of nights!
