That is interesting. Personally I would like to see them bring back the original cover designs, like Vanessa Bell's for To The Lighthouse.
1. Lytton Strachey - a character in every sense of the word. His work is not as well known these days, probably because the topics he chose seem less relevant now, but his writing was unique, and he was very funny. His letters are great reading.
2. Duncan Grant - I like his work, particularly the earlier stuff. I also admire his ability to stay on everyone's good side despite his very complicated interpersonal relationships.
3. Virginia Woolf - for her brilliant work.
Very interesting - thanks for posting.
