Austin Osman Spare: DEAREST VERA


1st 2010 176pp Fulgur. Illustrated in colour and black & white. Mauve cloth boards. A couple of tiny dints in cloth, text block slightly wavy else NM in NM dustwrapper.


Ltd. ed. 600 copies. In his late creative life, Spare was sought out by artists and writers eager to receive insights of experience from the ‘Walworth Road Surrealist.’ And yet, there were very few indeed who became good friends. Vera Wainwright was one such friend. She arrived in Spare’s life as the clouds of war cast a long shadow over South London, and sought him out amid the debris of the blitz to offer her support and affection. Dearest Vera is an account of their friendship told by Spare himself, through the many letters sent to his new pupil.
