9780143123163: Pride and Prejudice (Penguin Drop Caps)

It all begins with a letter. Fall in love with Penguin DropCaps, a new series of twenty-six collectable hardcover editions with a gorgeous type cover for each letter of the alphabet. Featuring lettering by Jessica Hische, a superstar in the world of type and illustration, whose work has appeared everywhere from Tiffany & Co. to Wes Anderson's films to Penguin's own bestsellers, Penguin DropCaps debut with an A for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, a B for Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, and a C for Willa Cather's My Ántonia.

A is for Austen. Few have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet in Austen's beloved classic Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth's early determination to dislike Mr. Darcy is a prejudice only matched by the folly of his arrogant pride. Their first impressions give way to true feelings in a comedy profoundly concerned with happiness and how it might be achieved.

JESSICA HISCHE is a letterer, illustrator, typographer, and web designer. She currently serves on the Type Directors Club board of directors, has been named a Forbes Magazine "30 under 30" in art and design as well as an ADC Young Gun and one of Print Magazine's "New Visual Artists". She has designed for Wes Anderson, McSweeney's, Tiffany & Co, Penguin Books and many others. She resides primarily in San Francisco, occasionally in Brooklyn, and can otherwise be found in airplanes en route to speaking engagements.

Review:

Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That makes her sound like an insufferable goody-goody, but the truth is she's a completely hip character who ,if provoked, is not above skewering her antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally sharp, yet always polite, 18th-century wit. The real point of the book though, the critical question which will keep you fixated throughout, is: will Elizabeth and Mr Darcy hook up? Read this genuine all-time classic and discover the answer while enjoying a story that has charmed generation after generation.

Review:

'Many believe that print s salvation may lie in playing up to its inherent collectibility if many are right then this series should be very successful.' - It's Nice That

This edition of the book is great as the author's original spelling has been left unchanged, and it's not full of appendixes and notes. ( 5 Star Amazon Reviewer )

This edition has good quality paper, is well laid out, nice clear print (not too small), and is very well bound ( 5 Star Amazon Reviewer )

I really like the style of this book. The hardback, has a nice texture, and reminds me of one of those books that were around in the 'Pride and Prejudice' time period (old-fashioned, vintage).. i like that :) I was very pleased with the useful notes and chronology information etc within this version, has helped me alot in understanding, further, this story etc. Was a very good purchase for a very good price.. --( 5 Star Amazon Reviewer )
