The Illustrated Biography of Jane Austen
More book news - another release that has caught the eye of the Jane Austen News is that of Chronicle Books' new illustrated biography of Jane Austen. Chronicle Books has begun a series of books about important people in history, in relatively short, beautifully illustrated volumes. Though not long, these books contain plenty of detail and the pages are filled with lovely water-colour illustrations alongside handwritten words that celebrate Jane Austen's life, detail facts from her life, and also included are extracts from some of her letters. Jane Austen's biography, along with that of Virginia Woolf, is the first volume to be released in Chronicle's new series called Library of Luminaries, though many other women are due to be featured later on, including Frida Kahlo and Coco Chanel.
