10 Books from Virginia Woolf
and from her Hogarth Press
The books from Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press are the complete package: brilliant avant-garde texts, stunning Post-Impressionist and abstract jacket designs, and a great backstory about a couple who didn't quite realize how difficult it would be to print their own books. Most of those featured here include art by Woolf's sister, Vanessa Bell. But there are a couple surprises tucked in: a Hogarth production by Woolf's lover, and a Woolf signed limited edition issued in the US.
