Persephone BooksSee more

I discovered Persephone Books, from London, in 1999. Their mission, to re-publish books, mostly by women, that were “unjustly out of print” resulted in a trove of wonderful novels and non-fiction works, each enjoyable in its own special way.

Persephone titles here many are favorites, and some are the latest releases. When you look inside the front cover you will see printed a textile that is from the time period of the original printing, and a bookmark slipped inside. Descriptions of all of the books are in the catalogues you can find in store.

They have travelled a long way to be here; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
