And now a word from our sponsor...

Fanny Cornforth herself highly recommends the lovely (and very funny) Kirsty Stonell Walker's excellent biography Stunner: The Fall and Rise of Fanny Cornforth.

This is the brand new, revised and updated 2012 edition with new images of Fanny and a section devoted to Fanny in pop culture. (Yes, how many times can I say "Fanny" and try not to snicker?)

Also do yourself a favor and check out Kirsty's wonderful (and often hilarious) blog devoted to Pre-Raphaelite and Victorian art, The Kissed Mouth (the title of the book's cover painting.):

Stunner is available at any in your country of choice:

(Featured in the above cartoon is Fanny with the Rossetti brothers: Gabriel (left) and Fanny's arch-nemesis, William Michael Rossetti. Read about all the drama in the book!)
