  • Carrington’s Letters: Her Art, Her Loves, Her Friendships

    Dora Carrington, edited by Anne Chisholm

    `Your letters are a great pleasure,’ said Lytton Strachey, ‘I lap them down with breakfast and they do me more good than tonics, blood capsules or iron jelloids.’ What more can we say?  The book has been beautifully produced, with a jacket design á la Hogarth Press, decorative boards, and endpapers based on one of Carrington’s paintings. Other paintings appear in the book, as well as photographs, and many of her drawings appear as vignettes in the text too.

    Dora Carrington was, it turns out, an exuberant, passionate and prolific correspondent, and these letters give a strong, clear voice to a relatively unheard but central member of the Bloomsbury set. Anne Chisholm has been working on these letters for six years; her most recent other work was an acclaimed biography of Frances Partridge. She has been kind enough to sign a few extra copies of this wonderful labour of love. Please let us know if you would like a signed copy – email or telephone for these is best as they are in short supply…
