Trends come and go but Jane is forever
I've been a fan of Jane Austen for a long time now, since middle school but unlike my love for Winnie-the-Pooh, it wasn't love at first sight. Rewind two-years before my love for Jane Austen when I chanced upon Pride and Prejudice in the classroom library that consisted of Tupperware containers (yes, I was that young), I really disliked Austen. Granted, the only English classic I liked at that point was Sherlock Holmes, despite the fact that "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" scared me (It still does, a bit.)
Fast forward to today--I've got a collection of Austen paperbacks and various Jane Austen products from a Pemberly pennant to a Jane Austen journal. Enter Jane Austen Cover to Cover: 200 Years of Classic Book Covers from stage left. It combines a lot of things I really enjoy-- history, graphic design, and Austen. It's almost as if it had my name on it.
