I was recently sorting through my wife's family photos when I found one that particularly caught my eye...

Obviously the Penguin paperback alerted my book radar, but that aside, it is a wonderful photo. The natural light, depth of field and composition make this more than a snapshot, although I'm told that it was probably taken spontaneously as there were no keen photographers in the family.

This image of a 1940s woman reading the latest Evelyn Waugh would look good in any Penguin advertising campaign for modern classics.
