Judith Jones may not have been a household name, but without her, some of the world’s most famous books may never have been published.

In 1950, Jones was working as an editorial assistant at Doubleday Publishing when she stumbled upon a book in the discard pile that she couldn’t put down. She was struck by the face on the cover: Anne Frank.

“I read all afternoon with the tears coming down my face,” Jones told NPR in 1998. “When my boss got back, it was evening by then. He said, ‘What are you doing still here?’ And I said, 'We have to have this book!’ And he said, 'What? That book by that kid?’”

The book by that kid became The Diary of Anne Frank. It had already been released in German and Dutch, but Jones convinced her bosses to publish it in the United States, vastly expanding its readership. It went on to sell more than 30 million copies worldwide in more than 60 languages.

Jones died Wednesday at her home in Vermont. She was 93.

Without Judith Jones, the world may never have known about the life of Anne Frank or the cuisine of Julia Child. 

The legendary editor rescued Frank’s personal journal from a publisher’s reject pile and introduced her first-person account of the Holocaust as “The Diary of a Young Girl.” 

She also spent months trying Child’s recipes that filled the pages of “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” 

Jones died today at her summer home in Walden, Vermont. She was 93.

Marion Cunningham, 1922-2012

“Marion Cunningham epitomized good American food. She was recommended to me by Jim Beard when we agreed to take over The Fannie Farmer Cookbook and update it from start to finish. She was someone who had an ability to take a dish, savor it in her mouth, and give it new life. At a time when Americans were embracing all kinds of foreign cuisine, Marion Cunningham’s love and respect for American food helped The Fannie Farmer Cookbook once again earn a place in kitchens across America.” —Judith Jones


Judith Jones is one of my absolute fave presenters on the TV travel series Globetrekker on PBS. I saw her for the first time on the episode when she traveled to Argentina and fell in love with her! She’s been in many other travel and food programs and I definitely will be checking them out! She’s intelligent, passionate, sexy, entertaining and a big dork<3 *sigh* be still my beating heart…

Night of the Living Dead will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 17 via Mill Creek Entertainment. The 1968 classic has received a 2K transfer from an original film print in its intended 1.37:1 aspect ratio.

Directed by George A. Romero (Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow), the film ins responsible for creating the modern zombie. Duane Jones, Judith O'Dea, Marilyn Eastman, Karl Hardman, Judith Ridley, and Keith Wayne star.

No special features are listed. Criterion is rumored to be working on a Blu-ray restoration for the film’s 50th anniversary next year, but this will be your best bet until then.

Hi Anea! I was seeing PotO on West End on Thursday when Charlotte Vaughan was on and she seemed to have the same type of floral brooch belt on the Elissa costume as Wendy Ferguson. Could it be the same one?

The details you notice when you sketch the costumes, eh? All the stuff to get right… The Celinde Elissa one was gorgeous

As for the brooch belt on Charlotte Vaughan’s costume, it’s definitely an elder style seen in the early/mid 2000s. It’s one of my favourites! Lookie!

I like it way better than the larger “UFOs” they have in lots of the current skirts.

Charlotte Vaughan’s skirt differs from that of Wendy Ferguson in general, both in main base and tabs and apron. But the belt/brooches might very well be a re-use from her costume. A similar style was however worn by both An Lauwereins, Shan Cothi, Nan Christie, Judith Gardner-Jones, Sally Harrison, Nicola Rutherford, Fiona Finsbury etc. so it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where Vaughan’s belt might have originated. But it belongs to that era and is by all accounts a re-use, at least. So good eye there!

I don’t know why but I find this picture really cute. 

I hate Negan for killing Glenn and Abraham and for all the emotional pain he is going to make me feel but at the same time he is such a great character.
