I came across the Persephone Books website www.persephonebooks.co.uk by chance when I was researching book publishers websites. Before this I knew nothing about Persephone Books as I had never heard of them before. Out of curiosity I browsed their website and found it to be very interesting.
They reprint books written mainly by 20th Century female writers that have been forgotten or neglected.They currently have a collection of 96 books, each book has been chosen by Persephone because it is thought provoking and well written.These books will be of interest to readers who enjoy, nostalgia,vintage, true life and Social history
Their books include ;
While browsing their website I noticed a section at the bottom of the homepage where you could subscribe to their newsletter, so I signed up. All subscribers are sent a lovely coloured catalogue containing detailed information about their books, a vintage fabric designed bookmark, and a free copy of their Biannually magazine , also containing beautiful artwork and information.I got my copy through the post a few days after I applied.
The website is an interactive site for fans of Persephone, with a blog and a forum where members can ;

The books are designed with a Dove Grey jacket and the endpapers are printed in lovely Vintage fabric designs , you also get a bookmark to match.I have not yet ordered any books from them because at the moment I am still reading through the catalogue so that I can decide which ones to buy.The trouble is they all look good and I just want to own them all!
Summary: You will want to own them all
