Front and back covers: I tried to stay with a narrow color scheme- pale blue and browns. By all means- artists, please do not feel that you have to stay with this palette! It was an exercise in 'control' for me- since I tend to be all about color and lots of layers. This book can be about all things 'Jane'- whether it illustrates bits from her novels, works around quotes, or simply gives a snapshot of what it was like during her era in England.
The inside cover and facing page introduce Jane and her 'England'
This spread is illustrating a few quotes that I found amusing. So many of Jane's novels had a focus around marriage and the surrounding etiquette involved in courting that special prospect.
The back facing page is featuring an ATC I received in a recent 'Jane' themed swap. Beverly Sager is the artist and I thought this would be the perfect home for the ATC she created for me. My 'sign in' page is on the inside of the back cover and is a large envelope to collect calling cards- just like Jane would have done! I hope you enjoy working in my book- I will be so thrilled to see all of the wonderful and diverse creative energy you have to share!
