Jane Austen Cover to Cover by Margaret C. Sullivan
Jane Austen’s six novels are true classics, still immensely popular some 200 years after their first publication.
But although the celebrated stories never change, the covers are always different. Jane Austen Cover to Cover compiles two centuries of design, from elegant Victorian hardcovers and the famed 1894 “Peacock” edition to 1950s pulp, movie tie-in editions, graphic novels, foreign-language translations, and many, many others. Filled with beautiful artwork and insightful commentary, this fascinating and visually intriguing collection is a must for Jane Austen fans, design geeks, and book lovers of every stripe.
