Today is Virginia Woolf's birthday. It is such an honor to have published Woolf and her mother, Julia Stephen, in On Being Ill with Notes From Sick Rooms. As a special birthday present to all Woolf fans, read the letter that Virginia Woolf's great niece, Henrietta Garnett, wrote to Paris Press after she read our publication of On Being Ill in 2002. Henrietta Garnett granted the Press permission to use the beautiful Vanessa Bell cover that was created for the original Hogarth Press publication of On Being Ill in 1930.
Happy Birthday, Virginia! Thank you, Henrietta Garnett and Vanessa Bell.
