Jane Austen: Cover to Cover - Margaret C. Sullivan

LibraryThing Early Readers book.

I will admit, I would probably never have bought this book, but I’m really happy to have it.    It’s exactly what the title says it is – Jane Austen book covers through the years from first publication, up to the present day.      It’s a really neat study on changing times, changing design esthetics, and changing views on what these stories mean to readers.

The book talks about collecting these books.   I confess, as much as I love them, I’ve never considered that.    I think this book is a nice substitution – an interesting stroll through literary history in a way I’d never thought of before.
