Dorothy Canfield copy

This photograph of Dorothy Canfield Fisher (1879-1958) is in fact up on the website. It is also reprinted in both the grey and the classic edition of her book PB No.7 The Home-maker so most readers of the Persephone Post will have seen it before. But in all honesty we couldn’t not put it up again here because it is such a captivating photograph. Incidentally, we have written up The Home-maker for the Toast website which is full of captivating photographs too… we have decided that we’ll be wearing long belted skirts and fair isle sweaters come autumn.
