Cicely Hamilton in costume

August is the quiet month at Persephone Books, allowing for a (very) small amount of filing and organising. Sorting through the folders labelled ‘Author pics’ we have re-discovered some excellent images, lots of which we haven’t used on the website before. So this week the Post is dedicated to a completely random selection of just five of ‘our’ authors; all of whom we are equally proud to publish. First is Cicely Hamilton (1872-1952), author of PB 1: William – an Englishman, in costume for A Pageant of Great Women (1910) which can be read here.
