So we all know I love to read:
Especially Jane Austen:
And we all know how much I love Jane Austen stuff:
So the other day I was on Facebook, just scrolling through updates when I came across this site Litographs. It is amazing!!
They take classic literature and print it onto shirts, scarves, temporary tattoos, posters, and tote bags. Some books they print just the words, while others they do a design in your choice of color. The prices range from $29-34.
So looked through all my favorite books: Sherlock Holmes, The Phantom of the Opera, Peter Pan, The Great Gatsby, etc. And of course: Jane Austen.
They actually have designs from every one of her books, so whether your favorite is Pride and Prejudice or Persuasion you are sure to find something.
Sense and Sensibility
Sense and Sensibility comes in two different designs or text. I preferred this one over the other.
Pride & Prejudice
So this actually comes in several designs or your choice of just the text. My favorite look was this one:
As of right now, you can only get Mansfield Park in the text form, but I’m looking forward to what designs they come up with later.
Emma has two designs and I think they are both absolutely gorgeous.
Like Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey only has one design, the text. Just like the other one, I’ll be waiting to see what they come up with for illustrations. Maybe her arriving near the Abbey? That would be cool.
Out of all the illustrations, my favorite has to be the ones for Persuasion. I’m actually split between these two on which I would like to purchase.
They also have a special deal which for $17 they will send you a random T-shirt. For a deal like that I am sorely tempted. I’ll be working extra hours this next month of July, so I’m planning on rewarding myself with something from here. When I purchase it, I will post myself in it.

That seems to be an awesome site worth checking out!
Have you ever read “Longbourn” by Jo Baker? It retells the story of “Pride and Prejudice” from the perspective of the servants. It offers a unique take on a classic novel.
I haven’t yet, but it is on my to-read list.
Interesting! Have you ever read any books that feature updated settings of Jane Austen works?
Quite a few. All the ones I have reviewed so far are under the posts: Happy Birthday Pride & Prejudice; A Sense of Sense and Sensibility; and 200 Years of Glorious Emma.
