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.): http://fannycornforth.blogspot.com/
Stunner is available at any Amazon.com in your country of choice:
