Introducing a new collection of notebooks with iconic images from the archives of the Imperial War Museum, these notebooks are exquisitely finished and cloth bound with wood-free paper, large back pocket, and elastic closure. These striking images were originally illustrated for World War II posters. British wartime posters were distinctive in their incorporation of propaganda, which used modern design aesthetics in support of a variety of vital wartime initiatives. The posters reveal the spirit of defiance and calm purpose pervading British society, and the illustrations are indicative of the typical graphic style of the wartime period.

A compelling study of the sea change brought about in politics, society, and gender roles during World Wars I and II by campaigns to recruit Women's Land Armies in Great Britain and the United States to cultivate victory gardens. Cecilia Gowdy-Wygant compares and contrasts the outcomes of war in both nations as seen through women's ties to labor, agriculture, the home, and the environment. She sheds new light on the cultural legacies left by the Women's Land Armies and their major role in shaping national and personal identities.

"A wonderful collection of women, some famous, some completely unknown from different walks of life, talk to Mavis Nicholson about how they lived, worked, loved, managed during the war years and how lives were changed (or at least the lives of women since then) by their experiences. They were factory workers, entertainers, landgirls, mothers of evacuees, socialities, code-breakers, blackmarketeers, women who served in the forces. Their extraordinary frank stories uncover for almost the first time the vivid detail of women's lives, the make-do and mend, the new freedom that war gave them, but also the euphoria and depression which followed, the post-war adjustments that had to be made. Includes conversations with actress Molly Weir, writer Mary Wesley, secret agent 'Odette', Pauline Crabbe (Council for the Unmarried Mother), illustrator Kathleen Hale (of ORLANDO THE MARMALADE CAT fame), singer Anne Shelton's last interview, and many others from all over Britain)."

Elizabeth David was born into a upper-class family and pursued a rebellious and bohemian life as a student of art and then an actress in Paris, before running off with a married man to Greece and then settling in Cairo, where she worked for the British government. After the Second World War, she returned to England, where she was shocked by poor food into writing first articles, then books on Meditteranean cooking. A Book of Mediterranean Food was published in 1950, inspiring a cookery revolution, bringing new flavours and ingredients to the drab, post-war British diet. Over the next few years, David was to become a major influence on British cooking, yet her classic cookery books show little of the colourful personality behind the public persona. Artermis Cooper, in this refreshing biography, reveals an adventurous and uncompromising personality - a woman with a passion for food, life and men. This is the whole story: of her strong friendships, her failed marriage, tempestuous affairs and the greatest love of her life, told with extensive refererence to David's private papers and letters. 'In this wonderful and creative book, Cooper has brought David to life... she not only writes like an angel, but has done her research with great skill and obvious enjoyment.' Derek Cooper, Sunday Times 'Engagingly well-written, thoroughly researched and documented. One of the delights of Artemis Cooper's book is that it makes you go back, time and again, to the source. And suddenly I will find that I have whiled away the afternoon re-reading, for the sheer pleasure of it, half of Spices or An Omlette and a Glass of Wine.' Frances Bissell, The Times 'Fluent, engaging and astonishingly readable.' Clarissa Dickson Wright, Mail on Sunday 'Artemis Cooper is skilled and wise enough to handle the contradictory sides of David's character without being either censorious or sensational.' Arabella Boxer, The Times Literary Supplement
