“I have never read a Blue Book. I prefer books… in a yellow covers.”


Next Thursday, John Calder discusses a brief history of the Yellow Book. Beloved by the Aesthetic and Decadent movements, the Yellow Book contained contributions from Arnold Bennett, George Gissing, Henry James, Max Beerbohm and was associated, through Aubrey Beardsley, with Oscar Wilde, of course.
