I love these first edition Virginia Woolf covers hand-painted by Vanessa Bell (Virginia's sister).

oh my goodness, these are gorgeous. If I had to choose a favorite, I think it would be Bell's "Mrs. Dalloway" cover. Thank you for posting :)

If you like Vanessa Bell's work then you'd love the house that she and Duncan Grant and various others who were all part of the Bloomsbury Group created in Sussex called Charleston Farmhouse http://www.charleston.org.uk/. I live very near it and it's one of my favorite places to go and and visit. They painted all the furniture and the walls and made so many things by hand, the patterns and shapes they used were well ahead of their time. It's situated in the beautiful Sussex countryside at the foot of the South Downs. If you ever come to England - I'd highly recommend a visit.
