Portrait • 26 November 2008 • The SnowBlog


This interesting article suggests that the only portrait in existence of Lucrezia Borgia has been discovered. Why not celebrate this discovery by buying The Book of Love, Sarah Bower's marvellous work of historical fiction. Set against the glittering background of the court of Ferrara in the early sixteenth century, it is the heart-breaking story of what happens to an innocent abroad in the world of the Borgias. These two posts of mine mean you can tell that I'm sitting here reading the papers. Must do some work! Update: here's an image of Ceasre from Sarah to supplement her comment below. Cesareborgia.jpg


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
