This is the best book on Bloomsbury I've ever read. It covers art, aesthetics, literaure, interior desgin of Bloomsberries! The book is full of beautiful pictures and paintings by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grants that I've never seen in other books before. The book shows that the writer's heart is in Bloomsbury's aesthetics and it is based on the writer's love of Bloomsbury's art and what an academic thought provoking study! No one define what Bloomsbury means better than Reed. It is a must buy for those who are merely interested in or studying about Bloomsbury. Highly recommend it and worth every penny for buying this book that contains all the historical information about Bloomsbury that you need to read and wonderful works of art.
This elegant and lavishly illustrated book encapsulates all that is characteristic of the spirit of the Bloomsbury group. They challenged the drab and conformist style that prevailed , looking back to the classical and forward to new horizons.
