Ladies Almanack is being made into a film

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:

  1. 818 B261L 1928 Connolly
  2. PS3503.A614 L3 1928

You can find more information about the film and some clips at this link. Please note that images and content contain nudity.
