Stunner - FAB!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stunner: The Fall and Rise of Fanny Cornforth (Paperback)
I'm reviewing the second edition of the book - and it is FANTASTIC. I cannot believe that anyone would not want to waive their publishing/image use fees for a labour of love like this - sadly, the author cannot afford to pay for many images. Having said that, the writing here is just wonderful and anyone with more than a passing interest in Rossetti will probably own a book containing many of the works referred to.
A really great read and insight into just how crap it was to be a woman in Victorian times :) A shame that the same Victorian attitudes are still plaguing the memory of Fanny Cornforth to date.
Loved this book and recommend it to all.
