Thanks to Chris Sullivan for sending Blogging Woolf this image of a recipe for Angelica Garnett’s Cherry Tart. It’s from Jans Ondaatje Rolls’  The Bloomsbury Cookbook: Recipes for Life, Love and Art, published this spring.

The book offers more than 180 recipes — some handwritten and never before published — from Frances Partridge, Helen Anrep and David and Angelica Garnett.

Virginia Woolf broke the rules of narrative fiction. So it is fitting that a ballet based on her work will breakorlando the rules of narrative ballet.

Woolf Works, a dance piece based on Woolf’s life as well as three of her novels — Orlando, The Waves and Mrs. Dalloway – – will premiere in summer 2015 at the Royal Opera House, London, as the centerpiece of the new season. It will be choreographed by Wayne McGregor.

McGregor said Woolf’s writing, which lends itself to breaking rules, will allow him to mash up, splice and go backward and forward in time to give the audience “a different way of experiencing ballet.”

Amanda Ann White creates collages, using paper clipped from old magazines. And sometimes the subject of her collages is Monk’s House.

Night and Day, Monk's House

Night and Day, Monk’s Househer collages is Monk’s House.

White emailed Blogging Woolf to share her collages of Virginia Woolf’s Sussex home, which are sold in the home’s new shop.

“The images of Monk’s House were the first things that went into the new shop incorporated into Monk’s House. In fact they were on sale before it was installed. They sell as cards and small prints there. Visitors to Monks House do seem to like them,” White wrote.

She also sells the collages at her Etsy shop. Larger high quality art prints are available on her website in the Giclee section.

White says she will offer new cards based on details from a long picture of the house and garden, which is a design for a bookmark, later in the year.

Collage is a not a new topic for Woolfians. The subject came up on the VWoolf Listserv in 2012.
