Discovery of a late Christmas present

Having a good tidy-up yields some surprises. I came across a little bag ...
which came home with me from the Persephone bookshop, back in early December, and was put "somewhere safe" with a view to reading the book over the holidays - a Christmas present to myself.
When you go to the Persephone bookshop you can pick up a catalogue (there are now 120 books in the "series") and a copy of the magazine that Persephone produces every six months.

I read about the book on dovegreyteader's blog - she calls it her best non-fiction read of the year -

The memoir was written in 1942 and is illustrated with photographs and wood engravings. "It describes her happy childhood, her life at art school in Eastoburne and London, her marriage to Eric Ravilious, and their life in London and Great Bardfield and elsewhere in rural Essex."
