nocowardsoul: young lady in white and gentleman speaking in a hall ([alcott] kiss)
On Thursday I found that Susan Cheever's Alcott biography has two pictures by May Alcott's - one of Louisa that isn't online, and this one of Jo. And while looking for those I found a painting of a tree and flowers that was new to me.

Then yesterday I went to the bookstore and bought:
1. Louisa May Alcott: An Intimate Anthology - which does have May's drawing of Jo, but doesn't say that it's by May . . . I think it is, though
2. The 1998 version of Little Men - Oh my gosh, I cannot wait to watch this. Even if it is terrible. I squeed "I can't believe I found this!" to the cashier and he was like, "A long as makes you happy," and I should have replied "It does!" but I didn't. It does sound closer to the book than the 1940 one. When I go home for Christmas I should rewatch and review the 1940 one.
3. Carolyn Meyer's Catherine of Aragon (which I just typed Aragorn) novel so I can finish the quartet

She's kind of a big deal: Abigail May Alcott Nieriker

A pretty girl in Victorian dress. Her curly hair is down over her shoulders. She's looking to her left.

This is an image-heavy post, containing every picture of May's that I could find online or scan from books on Louisa. Just so you know.
