Library of Luminaries: Jane Austen

$16.95



We are absolute FANS of Jane Austen here, at Clever Girl.  Of all the books we've ever had, this is my favorite by far.  The drawings are charming, and capture all that we adore about Austen.  Discover the stories behind the stories in this 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. A must have for any clever girl's library shelf...
