Having so much enjoyed playing with my new VMC acquisitions yesterday, I carried on and took pictures of ALL of my Virago books. Actually, that's not quite true, as the one I was currently reading had temporarily disappeared (my boyfriend had put it under the coffee table...), and I forgot about Sarah Water's The little stranger. And of course there are the two latest VMC acquisitions that I mentioned yesterday which haven't made it into any of the pictures.
So with that caveat, here are my original green VMCs...
...my Daphne Du Maurier VMCs (I have nearly the whole set, am just missing Rebecca, My cousin Rachel and Jamaica Inn - my reasoning at the time for not buying these (plus Frenchman's creek) is that my Mum has a compendium of these four titles. However, I saw Frenchman's creek for £1, and will hopefully pick up the others in that way. ) I LOVE these covers and my DDMs. I really recommend the book Vanishing Cornwall as Virago have done a splendid job on this title - I had the original Penguin paperback version, but this is sumptuous and beautiful.
...here are my other Virago Modern Classics titles, some of which I've read, and some of which are as yet unread. I love the reprinted Antonia Whites, and the new Pyms - I'm looking forward to replacing my copy of Some tame gazelle with a VMC copy when it comes out very soon.
...earlier this year, Virago issued some lovely hardback versions of their books, but I only own this Barbara Pym. The cover is very beautiful, but I'm not quite sure about the concept of the hardback VMC.
...and finally, a pile of Viragos which I own which are not VMCs. A little confusingly, both the Glenddining biography and the Helen Garner book have green spines.
