Winifred Darch

I commented this morning on Furrowed Middlebrow’s blog about how much I like Winifred Darch’s books, which Scott has been reading. So here, for no reason at all except that I like the covers, are some pics.

Lovely. The covers bring back school girl memories from the dim and distant past :)
The covers are rather before our time :-) but I like to have them.
I have several Winifred Darches in the lovely boards, but I find the spines don't wear very well.
Mine seems OK but I've only got that one with pretty boards. I thought I had more of her books than I found.
I'm feeling envious - my Darch collection is smaller (and made up of totally different books) and nowhere near as lovely as objects. The first one I got was one I think I 'always' had, so I grew up with it.
When I got the books out to photogrpah them, I was surprised how few I had!

I like home/school books, which is what makes her a favourite writer.
