“Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than merely to keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world’s view of us.” Virginia Woolf, Orlando, 1925.**This fabulous book was an @oxfam_hampstead_books find this weekend. It’s true that some writers have had a ‘look’ as distinctive and inimitable as their written voice. I loved the way that the author (curator?) Terry Newman combined photographs with prose and personal essays.**I recently had an interesting conversation about clothing/style with some book friends. We were discussing transitions in life, and how they might be defined - or at least emphasised - by a change in wardrobe. Do you think of yourself as having a signature look? I don’t, at all; and yet how often a close friend says to me, “this looks like you”.**#legendaryauthors #joandidion #photography #booksaboutwriters #fashion #bookishfashion #terrynewman #bookcollector #bookwormlife #bookstagramfeature #booksandcoffee

@sunlitcaverarebooks
For sale, a much nicer than usual first edition/printing copy of Ken Kesey's arguable magnum opus, Sometimes a Great Notion. Published by Viking (NY, 1964). Book and jacket both first state with requisite points. Book is remarkably fine, bright boards, unfaded green topdye with just a bit of speckling toward spine. Jacket is an almost as impressive near fine, some faint rubbing to front joint with flap and also along spine (most copies seem to have this flaw in the spine, but it's much better here than normal). Also some light edgewear at corners and spine ends. Just a sexy copy overall of a very susceptible book, especially the jacket. US$375....#kenkesey #kesey #sometimesagreatnotion #firstedition #firsteditions #rarebook #rarebooks #bookcollecting #bookcollector #bookcollection #bookstagram #instabooks #yegbooks #bookseller #modernfirsts #modernfirsteditions #shelfie #bookporn #oneflewoverthecuckoosnest #literature

@e.m.bennet_
I finally finished Gone with the Wind yesterday night, and oh my, the ending!! It was heartbreaking. I am so glad I picked this book up. It is really, really good, well written and enlightening, about a time period in history and its social context I didn't know a lot about. I encourage anyone who likes 19th century historical fiction to pick it up. Since it was a chunker and took me many weeks to read, I'm also glad to be starting a new novel today. At first, I intended to read Winter by Ali Smith, but I finally decided I was going to keep that one for next December. I will start The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. It will keep me immersed in the same setting as Gone with the Wind. That might help me transition to a new novel after such a long time in the previous one. #gonewiththewind #margaretmitchell #americanliterature #americanlit
