Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Cover for Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
We wanted to represent the contrast between Elizabeth and Darcy through the swirling calligraphic signs, ink stains and opposite colors: black (Darcy) and white milk (Elizabeth). The exchange of letters between the two main characters is very important in the story. The binding design was blocked in two coloured foils on gold metallic cloth.
