Dear Mary, Love Percy – A Creative Thread

DavidCross

£30.00

This is an extraordinary record of the 25-year friendship and exchange of letters between two of Cumbria’s leading cultural figures, Mary Burkett, author, biographer, and Arts patron and Percy Kelly, West Cumbrian artist, now acclaimed worldwide.

An insight into both lives is vividly obtained through this edition of her unique collection of Percy Kelly’s painted letters which also show how Percy’s troubled genius so often depended on Mary’s constant guidance and
support.
