Library of Luminaries: Jane Austen
An Illustrated Biography
By Zena Alkayat, Illustrated by Nina Cosford
Discover the stories behind the stories in this treasurable illustrated biography of Jane Austen. Enchanting illustrations and handwritten text featuring excerpts from Austen's personal letters outline the intimate details of the literary icon's life—her childhood on a farm, the writing of her first novella, her marital woes, the inspiration behind Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, and more. Brimming with delightful details like the objects Austen kept on her desk and how much Emma originally sold for, this beautiful package—a petite square with a textured, foil-stamped, and debossed cover—is a lovely new way to celebrate Austen's legacy.
