It's one of British literature's most popular novels—but you've never read Pride and Prejudice like this before. Whether you're a stressed student looking to do better in British lit or you're an Austen devotee, the most famous romance of pastoral England has never been more accessible. Read the book on your own time and on the go, with accompanying text and video analyses, reviews, quizzes and study guides.
Collagist Fabe adds flair to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice with 39 original illustrations that accompany the unabridged text. Fabe's collages overlay bright, watercolor-washed scenes with retro cut-paper figures and objects sampled from fashion magazines from the 1930s to the '50s. Accompanying each tableau is a quote from the Pride and Prejudice passage that inspired it. Like Austen's book, Fabe's work explores arcane customs of beauty and courtship, pageantry and social artifice: in one collage, a housewife holds a tray of drinks while a man sits happily with a sandwich in hand in the distance. While tinged with irony and more than a dash of social commentary, the collages nevertheless have a spirit of glee and evidence deep reverence for the novel. As Fabe describes in a preface, Austen "was a little bit mean the way real people are mean so there are both heroes and nincompoops. Family is both beloved and annoying. That is Austen's genius, her ability to describe people in all their frailty and humor." This is a sweet and visually appealing homage. (BookLife)

Says I don't have enough space!
I have 3.1 gigs available, but it says "not enough space". It says that the book is 1.79 GB, however I thought that it was an error, so I figured I would download it anyway. Didn't work. I'm using 1st gen. iPad mini. I'm not putting 1 star, because this is a great book.
I hope that this issue can be fixed! -User
This book is simply stunning. The paper illustrations are so charming and really complement the book.
The ENTIRE NOVEL is included along with text and video study guides. I'm a Jane Austen fan, but this book really helped me get a deeper understanding of Pride & Prejudice. It was just a great way to read a beautiful novel.
I love it!!!
Better than I expected…
I got this book because I read it a long time ago when I was in high school and wanted to remember it again. I made the purchase because the cover looked nice but I wasn't expected how cool the inside was. The "book" is more than just the text (even thought that's in there too) but has interactive character maps and a load of insightful videos showing the details and insights into the book. It was very beautiful and fun to read in this format! Highly recommended.
