Magnificant Second Edition,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stunner: The Fall and Rise of Fanny Cornforth (Paperback)
In the second edition, the author has doubled the size of the book, added more photographs (though of locations rather than artworks) and added so much that is interesting into the life and influence of this often neglected but important muse of Dante Rossetti. With the imminent Tate exhibition, Alicia Craig Faxon's new biography (2011) and the publication later this year of Jane Morris' letters, this is a timely new edition that helps round out the great artists life. Simple errors in the first edition have been corrected and the new research has been added seamlessly in an often light-hearted way that makes the book easy to read and really adds to our knowledge of the Pre-Raphaelites. My only suggestion for future editions is for an index. The authors blog The Kissed Mouth includes more material that adds to the book.
