Jane’s Fame by Claire Harman. Is there anything more lovely than a stack of books? I think not, and this cover proves it. The baby blue background sets the design in a calming, comfortable environment, much like Jane Austen’s prose. The stack, comprised of books both old and tattered and new and fresh, is a wonderful tribute to the classic author, one that symbolizes her success through many years. The china dish on top that holds the elegant little teacup (embroidered in Austen-esque accents) and cookie of some kind tops off the pleasant visual. I especially enjoy the many different typefaces used for the subtitle, which are stamped into the bottom edges of the books. All of the fonts are classic and bold except for “Jane Austen,” which retains a more delicate, feminine design.
