Persephone Readers

A group for all lovers of Persephone books, "reprints [of] forgotten classics by twentieth-century (mostly women) writers. Each one in our collection of seventy books is intelligent, thought-provoking and beautifully written, and most are ideal presents or a good choice for reading groups."

The picture to the right depicts the endpaper of Persephone's first book, William: An Englishman by Cicely Hamilton.
