A Pride and Prejudice greetings card featuring illustrations by Charles E Brock from a 1918 reprint of the novel by Jane Austen in a collaged design. The background features a pale green marbled paper taken from The Poetical World of Lord Byron (1907 Oxford edition).
The character illustrations depict Lizzy and Jane Bennet running after their father to find out "what news" he has received regarding Lydia.
The design incorporates this quotation from the novel -
Jane, who was not so light, nor so much in the habit of running as Elizabeth, soon lagged behind... "Oh Papa, what news? what news?..."
Perfect for those who love Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen and the regency period to send your news with by traditional post just as Jane would have done.
The card is A6 which measures 10 cm wide by 14.8 cm tall.
It is professionally printed with a finished surface on 300 gsm card. The interior is blank for your own message and there is no finish so that it is easy to write in with any type of pen or pencil.
Supplied in a cellophane bag to keep it in pristine each card comes with a brown linear textured envelope.
All greetings cards have free postage to a UK address.
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. I love the way the quotes from over a century ago can still have relevance or raise a smile today.
