Virginia Woolf and Her Female Contemporaries, seeks to contextualize Virginia Woolf's writing alongside the work of other women writers during the first decades of the twentieth-century. ~This volume not only expands our understanding of the unprecedented number of female writers but also helps us comprehend the ways that these writers contributed and complicated modernist literature. ~It explores how burgeoning communities and enclaves of women writers intersected with and coexisted alongside Virginia Woolf and emphasizes both the development of enclaves and specific female subcultures or individual writers who were contemporaneous with Virginia Woolf. ~The selected papers reflect the conference's diversity, both in themes explored and in the contributors. ~It includes known Woolf scholars such as Mark Hussey, Vara Neverow, Eleanor McNees, Leslie Kathleen Hankins, and Elisa Kay Sparks, as well as major scholars who do not generally write on Woolf, such as Melissa Zeiger, Kristin Bluemel, and Kimberley Ann Coates, and exciting new voices, such as Alyssa Mackenzie, Emily Rials, and Jessica Kim. ~The essays in the first section, "Who Are Virginia Woolf's Female Contemporaries," explore the boundaries of contemporaneity by considering women across nation, time, and class. ~The second section, "Cultural Contexts," explores Woolf's connections to early twentieth-century culture such as film and book societies. The two final sections, "Recovery and Recuperation," and "Connections Between Canonical Writers," illuminate the interlocking network of women writers and artists, the latter through women who have been bereft of scholarly attention and the former through women who have received more scholarly attention. ~One of the most enticing sections of the volume is the collection of essays presented during the conference's Jane Marcus's memorial. Three of Marcus' students celebrate the life, work, and influence of this unparalleled Woolf scholar.

The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators consists of over 3,000 entries on a range of British artists, from medieval manuscript illuminators to contemporary cartoonists. Its core is comprised of the entries focusing on British graphic artists and illustrators from the 2006 Benezit Dictionary of Artists with an additional 90 revised and 60 new articles. The collection highlights the rich history of British printmaking-both fine art prints and mass print media-and related activities in the production and illustration of printed books and manuscripts. Because of Benezit's focus on European artists of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, this collection provides comprehensive coverage of British graphic art and illustration during their most significant periods of development. Entries provide straightforward, concise narratives of the artists' lives and careers, and many entries include bibliographies, auction sale records, exhibition histories, and museum collection holdings. This collection also includes over 200 images of artists' signatures. The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators serves as a compact, affordable alternative to the fourteen-volume Benezit for specialists and collectors in the fields of British art and/or printmaking.
