This is a very new book, but already one of my favourites. Karen’s distinguished career has included working with designers, exhibiting her own textile art and teaching students. In this very modern and stylish book, she explains how thrifted finds and ancient sewing and embroidery techniques inform her work. It’s a stylish guide to the power and possibilities of textiles and has made me excited about sewing all over again.

This is the version in two volumes, and is the one I use. It gives not only the meaning and spelling of the words, but dates for their earliest use – always so handy when picky people insist I have used an anachronism! No, seriously, it’s fascinating.

The delightful story of the twenty-year correspondence between the author and Frank Doel, chief buyer of Marks & Co, antiquarian booksellers. I remember the sensation caused by this book. I loved it, my friends loved it, everyone did. The gentle arc of the relationship the great romantic distance between the writers. The insistence it was 'a true story' and our thrill at the power of the letter. People still wrote letters then, just. And we all marvelled at the possibilities.

There’s really not enough Slow Lorises in picture books. Probably because they’re so s...l...o...w, or are they? Alexis Deacon’s drawing are fresh and sketchy and full of personality, and the book is quirky and stylish.

As with Easton Ellis, I could have put any number of Dahl’s novels on this list – The Witches, Matilda, Danny The Champion Of The World – but this second part of his autobiography (which started with Boy) is utterly joyous. It’s as fantastic and funny and weird and thrilling as any of his fiction, taking in lions, snakes, fighters planes, deserts, and a cast of characters as eccentric as he’s ever had to play with. It’s completely delightful.

This novel occupies a place in Japanese literature perhaps akin to The Outsider by Albert Camus in French literature. It was first published in serial form in Japan in 1948 and the last part appeared on 13th June, the day Dazai took his own life. Both the man and his book acted as a guide and a key to help me reach post-war, Occupied Tokyo.

The book I nominated on Desert Island Discs as the one I would take with me to ease my castaway boredom. A truly wonderful story of ancient English magic - true magic, not stage-tricks - revived in the time of the Napoleonic wars. Richly satisfying.
