Plas Newydd again And this is Plas Newydd nowadays, at the back. Also, a brief word about what the Persephone Post is for (surely it's good to ask oneself what one is for every now and then?). Well, we do it first of all, and above all, because we enjoy it: any reader of Persephone books will understand that although the content ('the text, the text') is our primary focus, we also have a strong interest in all aspects of the visual arts and the Post (along with the Biannually, the shop etc.) contributes to that part of what we do. Secondly, the Post complements our obsession with neglected women writers by highlighting the overlooked, the less well-known, the forgotten in the visual arts. Thirdly, in general we choose images from the same period as the one we focus on in our books ie. the first half of the C20th but with little forays outside that period. (All kinds of other reasons for the Post's existence do come to mind but we'll leave the subject for now and return to it in a few days.)
