"Katherine Mansfield’s Journal is one of the great classics of twentieth century literature; it is a uniquely truthful record of a great writer at work, of the spirit of a genius in the last ten years of her life, and of the development of the modern mind during the early years of the last century."

Persephone Books is a publisher and bookseller in London, UK. It has been described as ‘The nearest thing British publishing has to a cult’ (Observer). Founder Nicola Beauman’s original concept was to publish a small number of ‘lost’ or out-of-print books every year, each with a grey cover and beautiful endpapers. When visiting London, literature lovers often make a special trip to Persephone Books' shop in Holborn.

The Journal of Katherine Mansfield was first published in 1927, four years after Mansfield's death. The endpapers in this edition, first published in 2015, are taken from 'Amenophis III' by Roger Fry, a printed linen designed in 1913 for the Omega Workshops.
