Illustrator and writer Leanne Shapton has designed a series of absolutely gorgeous patterned covers for Jane Austen's six novels. You can admire the books via the website Creative Review, but I have yet to see any signs of them on Random House's American website. I'm hoping this is due to a staggered release date, and that I won't need to special order them from the UK, because I'm going to be right grumpy if they get those, and we get these—which, while inoffensive, are also totally boring. . . .
