I thought it might be fun to suggest some books and web sites that I find particularly interesting and useful. I’m going to start this off with The DiCamillo Companion to British & Irish Country Houses. This Database, developed and maintained by Curt DiCamillo, began as a personal project and has evolved into a fabulous reference tool including over 7,000 houses. Curt is an architectural historian and is currently Executive Director of The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA. This database is obviously a labor of love.
The Mysterious Closet: A Tale by Myretta Robens in Jane Austen Made Me Do It, an anthology of Jane Austen-inspired stories coming in October 2011
