William F. Buckley, Jr. once said, “One doesn’t read Jane Austen; one re-reads Jane Austen.” It is this sentiment that explains why, more than two hundred years after its publication, Pride and Prejudice is one of the most beloved books in the world. Austen herself called the novel her “own darling child,” and it is with that heartfelt sentiment that Thornwillow Press announces the publication of a very special edition of this timeless novel, one that would have fit perfectly on Austen’s own bookshelf. Using the same time-tested craftsmanship, techniques and style of the early Victorian period, the leather and cloth bindings on this edition will be historically accurate greens and, most fitting, the boards will be a replica of the wallpaper in Austen’s own home.

But there’s more! To pay true homage to this timeless author, as well as the age-old craft of letterpress printing, we are also including two most special additions to Thornwillow’s Pride and Prejudice.

- Every letter exchanged by the characters in the novel will be reproduced on archival paper and bound into the book so that readers can enjoy the culture of Regency and Victorian letter writing, just as the characters do.

- Also drawings from “Elizabeth Bennet’s sketchbook” will be also bound into the book, including sketches of Pemberley, Longbourn and Netherfield, as well as scenes from the novel, giving readers an unprecedented, authentic view into the Bennet’s world.

The endurance of Pride and Prejudice’s popularity is testament to the fact that Austen’s characters and what they live through are part and parcel of the human condition. Cultural norms and expectations have changed, but women are still chafing at a lack of independence, and people are still beset with the same worries and joys. Pride and prejudice, vanity, unrequited or real love, the arrogance of youth and money, foibles and flaws, remarkable strength and courage, erroneous first impressions—it’s the stuff of good storytelling, and the fiber of what it means to be human.
