Images from 19th century editions of Jane Austen’s novels have entered into the public domain. Thanks to The British Library, we get to see what artists thought Austen’s characters looked like before Hollywood got to them. Here’s a sampling from Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.
If you like what you see, you can purchase high-quality copies from The British Library. Just follow the links on their individual Flickr pages.
