Co-published with The Fleece Press. When Douglas Percy Bliss went away to do his wartime service, he made for each of his daughters Prudence and Rosalind a little album of handwritten poems by authors such as Walter de la Mare, Robert Louis Stevenson and Frances Cornford, every poem illustrated delightfully with wit and humour. There are about 66 poems (some of them clearly Bliss favourites but not now as well known as they really should be), and Douglas’ images; these will all be reproduced in a facsimile volume, with 4 tipped-in illustrations and a short letterpress introduction by the ladies for whom the anthologies were created in 1941 and 1945.
