I've read all the diaries and letters books by Virginia Woolf and was glad to find a book that goes into more detail about Charleston. I'm always wishing for more photos though. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0701207809, Paperback)

This official illustrated guide looks at Charleston farmhouse in Sussex, the country retreat of the Bloomsbury circle. It was home to Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant - for over 50 years they covered walls, furniture and ceramics with their own decorations, forming a unique collection. Frequent visitors to the house include Virginia Woolf and Roger Fry. Angelica Garnett explains her part in the restoration of the property; Quentin Bell recollects the garden; and Henrietta Garnett's memoir of her grandmother gives an impression of life amony the Bloomsbury Group.
