Description

Virginia Woolf was one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. With her husband Leonard Woolf she started the Hogarth Press in 1917: the list ranged widely in fiction poetry politics and psychoanalysis and published all Virginia Woolf’s own work. Its first publication appeared in 2017: Two Stories bound in bright Japanese paper contained a short story from both Virginia and Leonard. Typeset and bound by Virginia with illustrations by Dora Carrington 134 copies were printed by Leonard using a small handpress installed in the dining room at Hogarth House Richmond. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of ‘Publication No. 1’ this new edition of Two Stories takes the original text of Virginia’s story ‘The Mark on the Wall’ (with illustrations by Dora Carrington) and pairs it with a new story ‘St Brides Bay’ by Mark Haddon a lifelong reader of Virginia Woolf. TWO STORIES also includes a portrait of Virginia Woolf by Mark Haddon and a short introduction from the publisher about the founding of the Press.
