I have watched Pride & Prejudice more than 100 times. You can find me often quoting the film or listening to the soundtrack. Due to this unmitigated love for Jane Austen and her writing and storytelling style, I chose to redesign her three most famous book covers: Pride + Prejudice, Sense + Sensibility, Love + Friendship.
Each novel carries with it a pattern or a symbol that is constant throughout. These related events are often contradictory to each other, hence the titles for each of these three novels. After studying the contrasting patterns, I sought to tell each book’s theme through an assortment of symbols that worked together and against each other.
