Inhaltsangabe: This unique collection of formal portraits and informal album pictures covers the period 1953 to 1979 when the author and her husband, the engraver and painter Reynolds Stone, lived at the Old Rectory, Litton Cheney, Dorset. This was a place of rest and inspiration for their friends, many of whom came to stay and work there, much in the tradition of the reading party. The book presents the public and private faces of people from a variety of worlds including the Bloomsbury Group, the Duke of Edinburgh, Kenneth Clark, Joyce Grenfell, Quentin Bell, Leonard Woolf, Iris Murdoch and John Bayley, Lennox Berkeley, Julian Huxley and many others. This book is a record of conversations and friendship, the story of a growing family and a picture of a fast-disappearing English country way of life. The author's work is in the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery. She has exhibited at the Royal College of Art and elsewhere. This is her first printed collection of photographs.
