Welcome fellow reader!
April is going to be an exciting month of Jane Austen awesomeness. I hope you will join us as we turn Pride & Prejudice into a month-long celebration. If you are looking for a first copy or you are wanting to add a special edition to your collection, I’m here to offer a few selections that have caught my eye.
“There is no enjoyment like reading!”
Let’s start out with the special edition by Barbara Heller. This is the must-have Pride & Prejudice copy for any reader looking for not just a book but an experience. This curated book includes nineteen letters for the characters’ correspondence. Each letter was written and folded by hand. This might be my favorite Austen book in my collection. I am so excited that Barbara will be joining us in April to talk about the making of her unique book.
The next edition I would recommend is one that I have been eyeing up for the last year. Every time I see someone on bookstagram make a post with one of the gorgeous Penguin cloth bound edition Jane Austen novels, I want to immediately run and purchase them all. They will for sure be on my birthday list this year.
The last edition that I am currently coveting is the gorgeous illustrated copy by Danish artist Marjolein Bastin. This gorgeous edition reminds me of my childhood room with Holly Hobby wallpaper and lilac colored bedsheets. Do you enjoy illustrated copies of your favorite books?
Will you be grabbing a copy for the read-along? Or do you have a well-worn copy at the ready? I am so looking forward to taking this journey with you.
