Illustrated Pride And Prejudice

Who says classic adult novels can’t be picture books too? This campaign on Kickstarter hopes to create an illustrated version of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride & Prejudice.

“For our initial goal, Janet [Lee] is producing twelve full-color, full page illustrations of critical scenes from Pride and Prejudice. She’s also producing twenty partial-page black and white illustrations that will flow with the text of the book…As we reach stretch goals, we’ll be adding full-color, full-page illustrations and black and white partial page illustrations to the book, until we’ve reached a total of twenty-four full-page illustrations and thirty partial-page illustrations.”

P.S. Interested in the relationship between text and visuals (between what an author describes and what a reader sees?). Check out What We See When We Read, by famed book cover designer Peter Mendelsund.

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”
