Djuna Barnes’s 1928 novel Ladies Almanack is the inspiration for an experimental new film.
The original text is a literary parody of the intellectual and lesbian social circle of Natalie Barney in 1920s Paris, with the main character based on Barney herself. It’s presented as a month-by-month poetic almanac of misadventures with illustrations in the style of Elizabethan woodcuttings.
We have two first edition copies in our holdings:
