Penguin Classics has just released a new edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen with a sparkling new cover by fashion illustrator Rueben Toledo.
We have seen many traditional cover art designs for Pride and Prejudice over the years, but I must say that I think that Toledo’s new cover qualifies as the snazziest. The two most pressing questions are: 1.) Do you judge a book by its cover? and, 2.) Do you need yet another copy of P&P in your library? Penguin Books is hoping you do, and I wholly confess to answering yes to both questions. One can never have too many editions of P&P and this transformation of Lizzy, Darcy &C into “Couture Classics” is irresistible.
To enter the drawing to win one of five copies of the Penguin “Couture Classics” edition of Pride and Prejudice, leave a comment before midnight ET on September 20 revealing your favorite scene in the novel and why. Winners to be announced on Monday, September 21st (shipping to US residences only). Good luck, and happy reading.
Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose
