An iconic novel dressed in a fierce design by acclaimed fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo. See the other titles in the couture-inspired collection: Jane Eyre, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula, The Scarlet Letter and Wuthering Heights. Ruben Toledo’s breathtaking drawings have appeared in such high-fashion magazines as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Visionaire. Now he’s turning his talented hand to illustrating the gorgeous deluxe editions of three of the most beloved novels in literature. Here Elizabeth Bennet’s rejection of Mr. Darcy, Hester Prynne’s fateful letter “A”, and Catherine Earnshaw’s wanderings on the Yorkshire moors are transformed into witty and surreal landscapes to appeal to the novels’ aficionados and the most discerning designer’s eyes. @FirstThoughtBestThought Usually a man wills his home to his wife or kids. But sometimes, he wills it to a distant relative, so when he dies, you’re out on your ass. And then, and THEN, that distant, meddlesome priest of a relative tries to seduce one of your sisters. Unsure why anyone would want my sisters. All they want is to hit it with the officers – what war are they even fighting in the countryside? Though my older sister–Jane–is nice. How could she not be? Jane is such a good name. I would like anybody named Jane. From Twitterature: The World's Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less

I know that my friend, Michael, an actual English teacher would be appalled by my characterization ...
I can't believe it took my until age 39 to read my first Jane Austen. I enjoyed the read even though it wasn't exactly in my wheelhouse for books I usually enjoy. There is literally no plot outside of who is going to marry and fall in love with whom, but the story was a fascinating look into upper...
I finally finished this book! YAY! My goodness, it took me forever to do so. It's as romantic as I had expected but also very difficult to keep track of all the Miss Bennetts. Lindsey Duncan's narration was delightful and she infused it with a lot of emotion.Before reading/listeningI have tried many...
Although I loved reading from an early age, I didn’t usually enjoy the classics we were required to read for school. In my adult years, I’ve mostly avoided them aside from several science fiction and fantasy classics. As a result of a conversation in a thread on another site, I decided to read one...
