Jane Austen covers

Cover reveals are a big event in the lead-up to a new book’s release. And different versions of a book (paperback, hardcover, mass market) might have different covers, or a new cover might be designed for the re-release of an older work. But what if your book was 200 years old? How many different covers would it have then?

Our Favorite this week is an article from The Guardian: Jane Austen’s fashion history: 200 years of cover designs – in pictures and a similar one from The Huffington Post: Jane Austen, Reinvented. Between the two there are about a dozen Austen covers from the past two centuries. See if you can tell the era in which they were designed before you read the article 😀
