Pride and Prejudice is one of the most beloved novels of all time, and nothing captures Jane Austen’s vivid emotion and keen wit better than her characters’ correspondence. This deluxe edition pays homage to the power of these epistles, from Lydia’s announcement of her elopement to Mr. Darcy’s honest, beseeching missive to Elizabeth. Glassine pockets placed throughout the book contain removable replicas of all 19 letters in the story. Each one has been re-created with gorgeous, hand-written calligraphy and hand-folded with painstaking attention to historical detail. In additional text, curator Barbara Heller offers the history of letter writing in Austen’s time, and reveals the detailed process behind creating the letters.Pride and Prejudice is one of the most beloved novels of all time, and nothing captures Jane Austen’s vivid emotion and keen wit better than her characters’ correspondence.
