  (I also read Antigua, Penny, Puce, but so long ago that I'll be able to enjoy re-reading it now.) Pattern pictures too. When we were little my mother had a couple of the big Vogue pattern books, and we pored over them and practiced all those model stances, particularly one where the model holds one taken-off glove in her gloved : Clothes In Books. The Story of Marie Powell: Wife to Mr. Milton, by Robert Graves, , is a historical novel based on a true story, the life of the young wife of poet John tells it from her viewpoint and paints an unflattering portrait of Milton. In addition to Milton and Marie, real historical characters included in the story include Edmund Verney, who is depicted as Marie's true love.

Antigua, Penny, Puce (), a barbed tale of sibling rivalry, gave its title to a never-issued one penny puce-and-white stamp from Antigua with George VI's portrait on it and three puce pigs eating at a puce trough. Jane and Oliver are the siblings who fight for possession of the stamp. Philip Larkin praisede it as 'unique among novels' for 'its variety of original invention, not to mention. The Antigua, Penny, Puce is the rarest and most beautiful stamp in the world. That was how the auctioneer announced it, and from that moment the feud began in earnest, for as children they had agreed to share Oliver's schoolboy stamp collection, and Jane now wanted her rightful share.

So the Antigua, Penny, Puce became the focal point of their rivalry, with each one resorting to every refinement of malice, mockery and sabotage until the law stepped in, and with a strange quirk of fate decided the Battle of the Stamp - and the running Battle of the Sexes. One of the characters in the book purchases a copy of Graves' Antigua, Penny, Puce! Works.

Through maternal machinations on behalf of Jane and a set of rather devious circumstances – the mother of the family exhibits a strongly manipulative technique which her daughter fully inherits – Jane attains a half-interest in the collection, and proceeds to contribute a number of rare and unusual items to the album, including a one-of issue of a purple-brown (“puce”) Antiguan one-penny stamp.
