Mimi Pond’s Do Admit: Making Sense of the Mitford Sisters


DO ADMIT: Making Sense of the Mitford Sisters is a D+Q Work in Progress. In Mimi Pond’s visual examination of Britain’s six storied siblings, their self-mythologizing and often-contradictory world views make for a fascinating work of narrative non-fiction.
