I recently did a post on the William Acton drawing of the Mitford Sisters which came from The Mitford Family Album. (I heard a rumor that there are place mats featuring these drawing. Has anyone out there on Mitford watch seen such a thing? I digress...)
little augury helped put the girls in order. Now I have found another Mitford question...
Over at Ancient Industries they posted this Nancy Mitford classic and wondered who the artist for the first edition jacket could be? Cecil Beaton, Rex Whistler and Osbert Lancaster come to mind... but
I believe it is Albert Roussel. Who is it little augury?
Today I received an e-mail from Amazon-UK filled with Mitford biographies and such.
|A Life of Contrasts: The Autobiography||Nancy Mitford (Vintage Lives)||Hons and Rebels||Diana Mosley|
|Nancy Mitford||The House of Mitford||The Sisters: The Saga of the Mitford Family|
Then, Megan Wilson at My Book Covers (also Ancient Industries) posted several Mitford covers.
Both Pigtown Design and Mrs. Trefusis Takes A Taxi went gaga over the new Lab Partners covers for the Penguin UK re-issues of Nancy Mitford's novels.
Well, I just can't take much more. Well of course I can.... We do love those pesky Mitfords.
