I've just finished "The Children's Book" by A.S. Byatt and it was a wonderful read about a very interesting period. Just a few topics mentioned in the book: the Suffragette movement, the bohemian way of life of artists and their families, the Great War,...
The end of the Victorian age and the turn of the century are a very tumultuous period, a part of history that is far away and yet very close to us.
And now I want to learn more about William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement, I want to read Peter Pan and find a good biography of mister Barrie, etc, etc...
I even made a pinboard, inspired by this book.
Patterns by Morris:
The Morris and Burne-Jones families:
Peter Pan, illustrated by the genius Arthur Rackham:
A few interesting links:
Victoria and Albert Museum
Turn of the Century, pictures and more pictures, to get in the mood of that period.
