Tenderness of Heart
Look at the absolutely bizarre cover on this edition of Jane Austen’s early works I found in a bookstore in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Check out the silhouettes of two DUDES who look like they are about to kiss! And what’s with the two Greek Goddess-y women at the bottom? Can someone explain this cover to me? And there are equally bizarre illustrations within. This edition was published by The Women’s Press Ltd, 12 Ellesmere Road, Bow, London. WHAT A FIND! This is why my Austen collection is so big. I can’t pass up interesting editions of any Austen, even if it’s one I already have five copies of.
