A collection of paintings, designs and writings of the Bloomsbury Group offering a unique portrait of one of the most influential cultural movements of this century. Excerpts from their letters, memoirs and diaries are combined with the artistic output of this avant-garde circle.

Unconventional and iconoclastic, the Bloomsbury group included not only the inner "family" circle of Roger & Clive, Vanessa & Duncan, but the Woolfs and their Hogarth Press, novelist David Garnett, economist Maynard Keynes, and the members of the Omega Workshops. Bringing together the images and the words they produced, Naylor allows the characters to speak for themselves on art, society, politics, and one another. This is not as much a study as a book of readings, excerpted from memoirs, diaries, letters, and published works. It is a step into the past accompanied by the editorial guideposts of introduction, biography, and illustration. Not the definitive work, but an interesting approach to a singular topic in an elegantly produced volume.
