Dodie Smith

Look at these beautiful illos of Dodie Smith by Asaf and Tomer Hanuka ... done for a book about Ambrose Heal.

Smith is perhaps best known as the author of 101 Dalmatians and in her own time enjoyed great success as a playwright.  But I Capture the Castle really is her masterwork.  It was filmed in 2003 with Romala Garai in the role of Cassandra Montamain, Rose Byrne as her sister and Bill Nighy as her father.

Worth watching, but really you should read the novel first.

Oh I love these - perfect. As you've guessed, one of my all-time favourite books too - nice to find a fellow-fan.
