Southern Charm

I was happy to turn over another calendar page just for a change of scenery after the dismal cover of Frank Norris’ The Pit. This month features a delightful illustration of The House of Fulfilment, a book about which I can discover little except that it draws portraits of five American women of the North and South, each ‘types in themselves’.

The lines of this drawing a curvaceous and pleasing, perhaps alluding to the soft and cushiony shapes of the female figure. The blustery landscape and coquettish look of the young woman immediately brings to mind the heroine of another book: Scarlett O’Hara. I’m not inspired this month to hunt out this book, but I might revisit Gone with the Wind the film!
