We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Likenesses: With the Sitters Writing about One Another
Aronson, Judith

2010. Aronson, Judith. Likenesses: With the Sitters Writing about One Another. Manchester: Lintott Press 2010. 132p, many large photos by Aronson printed in duotone. Fwd. by Charles Saumarez Smith, formerly head of the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery. Large new paperbound. Signed by the photographer. ** Compelling, intimate portraits of many writers, actors, and people of letters--Saul Bellow, Matthew Carter, Seamus Heaney, Robert Lowell, Robert Pinsky, Joan Plowright, Salman Rushdie, Simon Schama, and more--with texts ("memories, assessments, elegies, tributes") by other sitters or by Aronson. "A historian calls up a poet who figures elsewhere in the book; a poet summons up memories of her mother, a distinguished woman of letters, alongside her in the photo." Some of the contributions are original to the book, others are reprinted from earlier sources. A lovely book, good for a gift. (Item ID: A5782)
