It’s always nice to get bits of press about your books. It’s incredible when your books show up in other books!
Jane Austen Cover to Cover: 200 Years of Classics Covers is a recent anthology written by Margaret C. Sullivan and published by Quirk Books.
Here’s the description:
Jane Austen’s six novels are true classics, still immensely popular some 200 years after their first publication. But although the celebrated stories never change, the covers are always different. Jane Austen Cover to Cover compiles two centuries of design, from elegant Victorian hardcovers and the famed 1894 “Peacock” edition to 1950s pulp, movie tie-in editions, graphic novels, foreign-language translations, and many, many others. Filled with beautiful artwork and insightful commentary, this fascinating and visually intriguing collection is a must for Janeites, design geeks, and book lovers of every stripe.
Ms. Sullivan did us the great honour of including Cozy Classics in the book, and even calls the line of mud on Lizzy’s dress “faithful (and darling!)”.
And speaking of honours, it is always an incredible honour to be mentioned in the blogs of the incomparable Betsy Bird, who was once described as follows: “By day, a librarian. By night, the most powerful blogger in kids’ books.” Here’s her recent Fuse 8 Production blog post for the School Library Journal, with so many nice things said about us, Cozy Classics, and our upcoming series Star Wars Epic Yarns that it makes us blush. Thanks, Betsy!
