Well Dearie! The Letters of Edward Burra
The Letters of
London: Gordon Fraser, 1985. First printing.
For a flavor of the camp demi-monde underlying the English art scene from the 1920s to the '70s, there's no better guide than Burra's letters.
Written mainly to art school friends, over many decades, Burra's acid remarks and drawings are delightful.
With a dedication by the author, William Chappell, who is one of the main correspondents.
Hardcover with jacket. 224 pages and many drawings.
