The Bloomsbury Group was a union of friends who transformed British culture with their approach to art, design and society. The group aimed to rebel and challenge what they felt were the religious, artistic, social and sexual taboos of Victorian England. Together they created a revolution in British style that resonates with contemporary painters, writers, actors, designers, fashion editors and publishers.

This book explores the impact of Bloomsbury personalities on each other, as well as their legacy to the 21st century. Author and acclaimed Bloomsbury expert Frances Spalding demonstrates how this network of artists, lovers and patrons recorded one another obsessively in both words and images. She presents 20 fascinating biographies, all of which are illustrated with paintings and intimate photographs created by members of the group. Highlighted in her revealing account are Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Duncan Grant, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Roger Fry, J.M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington.
