Bloomsbury at Home free pdf Fascination with the Bloomsbury set - Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Lytton Strachey. Dora Carrington among others, never ceases. Bloomsbury at Home is the story of the friendship between a group of witty, lively, like-minded, highly-talented individuals who came together during the first half of the twentieth century. The book is divided by biography and geography into chapters centering on specific people and places, for example, Garsington, the home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, and Hogarth House in Richmond, home to Viriginia and Leonard Woolf, and of course no book on the Bloomsbury set would be complete without mention of Vanessa Bell's home at Charleston. Illustrated with a wide range of colour and black and white photographs, memorabilia (everything from menus to postcards). portraits and paintings by members of the group. Pamela Todd assembles a detailed account of how and where the Bloomsbury group grew up, interacted and lived together during the first half of the twentieth century producing some of their finest work, as well as evoking the richness of that extraordinary period in English art and literature.

About Pamela Todd

Pamela Todd began her working life at Punch magazine where her duties included reviewing new art exhibitions and old established restaurants. Thus food and art combined at a formative stage. In her subsequent roles as a journalist, editor, author and, for ten years, a literary agent, the combination remained seductive and never far away. Bloomsbury at Home, her tenth book, follows on from the success of The Impressionist's Table, also published by Pavilion.
