About the Author

Jane Austen was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector and her life, by modern standards, was uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, at age forty-one, and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque in honor of her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime; two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously.

Alice Pattullo is an illustrator and printmaker based in East London. She graduated in 2010 with a First Class Honours in Illustration from Brighton University. She works predominantly in screen print producing limited edition prints for sale in various outlets across the UK and online. Research is at the heart of her practice and her work is often inspired by British folk tradition and superstition.

What a wonderful Read. Pride and Prejudice has been one of my all time favorite books, so when I won this copy through Goodreads I was thrilled. I really thought the concept of "Classics Reimagined" was a great idea and what a fun way to introduce such classics to everybody who has not had a chance to read them yet, or even somebody who is very familiar with the books. I know I will treasure my copy forever, and I throughly enjoyed the addition of Alice Pattullo's illustrative interpretation. This would make a wonderful present for any book lover, I hope that Jane Austen would approve.
