Pride and Prejudice bookmark. The front design features Elizabeth Bennet holding a parasol and is a collage featuring a Victorian illustration by Charles E Brock from a 1918 reprint of the novel by Jane Austen. The background is a beautiful blue toned marbled endpaper taken from More English Fairy Tales published in 1895.
On the reverse of the bookmark is printed the quotation -
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.
Measures 5.5 cm x 17.3 cm.
The bookmark is professionally printed on 400gsm board with a matte laminated surface for durability.
I have always loved an illustrated classic and imagined many a character brought to life by the words I was reading. A vivid imagination and a love of the beautiful marbled endpapers in many of the bindings made me dream of how the two could be collaged together and started me searching for the perfect juxtaposition of patterns and pictures with literary quotations.
