Stillmeadow Album - Gladys Taber
I've been feeling self-indulgent lately, so I ordered this book from a used book store on-line. It's just what it says: a photograph album of Gladys Taber's home, Stillmeadow, beloved by the author and by readers around the world and through the decades.
On the right page is a photo of Stillmeadow, on the facing page, Mrs. Taber has written a brief description of or memory about the photo. (I just realized that the set-up of this book is exactly like that of the last one I posted about, Postmark Paris.) We get to see the exterior of the 1690 Connecticut Saltbox house, the interiors, photos of her family, pets, and neighbors, and some of the land around the house.
If you're a fan of her writings, which I am, you'd love this look into her life via photographs and words.
