Charleston (Bell and Nicholson)

Calling all those who love the Stephen sisters, Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf, along with their spouses and  many Bloomsbury friends, all prominent artists, writers and thinkers.  The group included Roger Fry, Maynard Keynes and Lytton Strachey, among others.

Fans of Bloomsbury life will enjoy a trip to Charleston, a unique home, which you can visit in this book.  Vanessa Bell lived at Charleston, while Virginia and Leonard Woolf had a house nearby.  Vanessa’s child Quentin Bell spent a great deal of time there when he was young as did his brother and sister.

Quentin and Quentin’s daughter, Virginia Nicholson, contribute their memories of Charleston to this lavishly illustrated book.  There are photographs of the house, reproductions of art work and so much more in this volume.  It is organized by room so you can spend time wherever you like and in the order that suits you.

This book is highly recommended.  It has a beautiful layout, gorgeous visuals and many enjoyable reminiscences.  Thanks for my visit NetGalley and the publisher!

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
