Virginia Woolf, The Years. London: Hogarth Press, 1937. Dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell.
"Mornings which are neither quiet nor heavenly, but mixed of hell and ecstasy: never have I had such a hot balloon in my head as re-writing The Years: because it’s so long; and the pressure is so terrific. But I will use all my art to keep my head sane."
— Virginia Woolf, from a diary entry dated 12 September 1935.
