and her beauty - it would shine forth - like a fountain of snow

In Praise of Shirley Collins. Beautiful. Beautiful. Sing me over.
visit her site, listen and listen

Right you are: Shirley Collins is a treasure! Also love the Provensen endpapers: where are they from?

ahoi! said...

Thanks Adam.
The endpapers are from The Fireside Book of Folk Songs, edited by Margaret Bradford Boni and illustrated by Alice and Martin Provensen, 1947

Ah, that is why they are so familiar: I grew up with that book. They complement the other pictures very well.
