persephone books

Baby was playing with a bookshelf this morning and whilst tidying up her mess I came across some books that I love from Persephone Books. Based in Bloomsbury, London they 'reprint neglected classics by C20th (mostly women) writers' for women. I was given a couple by a freind and they are such lovely gifts. From the outside they all have the same grey cover, with small cream title box and a picture of Persephone, very satisfying to look at but inside, what a delight. Each title has a different endpaper, a fabric design of the date and mood of the book, and you get a bookmark to match!

If you haven't yet discovered them you should, at the very least, visit their website.
