It is not often that at my local bookshop I would come across something as exquisite as this lovely book so it was a very exciting find. I have spent the better part of yesterday and today browsing through the detailed pages.
Because this is possibly the most beautiful book I have seen in my entire life, I am very eager to tell you about the delightful pictures and beautiful removeable items. However first I must say this book is by no means lacking in the content department, it is full of interesting information and is perhaps the first book I have come across in a long time in which I have learnt some new things about Jane, her world and her novels.
The book is 157 pages in length and is composed of an Introduction, which looks at the life and world of Jane Austen and six chapters, each focusing on the six of Jane's major novels. The each of the pages are so detailed, many of which contain pictures which range from photos of Jane's home to illustrations from her early novels and even a few photos of scenes from major movies.
"With her insight into the human heart and the female mind.Jane Austen becomes a private best friend to many of her readers."-Rebecca Dickson (Jane Austen: An Illustrated Treasury)
