The Material Mansfield
"You leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences - little rags and shreds of your very life." KM to Ida Baker, March 1922
Produced for an exhibition of the same name, this book presents many of Katherine Mansfield's possessions beautifully photographed and with excerpts from her letters and journals about them. They show another facet of this enigmatic New Zealander and offer new insights into her life. Here is poignant evidence of her thoughts about home from abroad; of her individual sense of style; of things that brought her joy and strength. Painstakingly put together by the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society, this book is beautifully produced and is a wonderful historical record and a gift for historians and Katherine Mansfield fans alike.
Hardcover. Published 2008. Edited by Laurel Harris, Mary Morris and Joanna Woods.
