Let us call this a ‘Flingback Friday’ post, shall we? When I illustrated the bicentenary edition of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility for Palazzo Editions back in 2011, Illustration Magazine ran a small feature about it and previous illustrated editions of the book in their Autumn 2011 issue. Due to some mishap or other, I never received a copy of the issue at the time, but the situation has been rectified and I’m finally able to share the article.
The article mentions my preparing to work on the bicentenary edition of Pride and Prejudice, as planned by Palazzo at the time. Unfortunately, as some readers may be aware, sales for S&S were so poor that the project to illustrate the bicentenary editions of all of Austen’s novels had to be sadly abandoned.
