Pride and Prejudice
The Complete Novel, with Nineteen Letters from the Characters' Correspondence, Written and Folded by Hand

Original text by Jane Austen, Edition by Barbara Heller

This deluxe edition brings to life the letters exchanged among Jane Austen's characters in Pride and Prejudice.

Glassine pockets placed throughout the book contain removable replicas of 19 letters from the story.

These powerful epistles include Lydia's announcement of her elopement, Mr. Collins's obsequious missives, and of course Darcy's painfully honest letter to Elizabeth.

Nothing captures Jane Austen's vivid emotion and keen wit better than her characters' correspondence.
Each letter is re-created with gorgeous calligraphy.
Letters are hand-folded with painstaking attention to historical detail.
Perusing the letters will transport readers straight to the drawing-room at Netherfield or the breakfast table at Longbourn.

For anyone who loves Austen, and for anyone who still cherishes the joy of letter writing, this book illuminates a favorite story in a whole new way.
