Description

Product Description

Gems of literature in a luxurious and unique design by Marjolein Bastin.

The Marjolein Bastin Classics Series is a chance to rediscover classic literature in collectible, luxuriously illustrated volumes. For the first time ever, the internationally celebrated artwork of Marjolein Bastin graces the pages of a timeless classic, Pride and Prejudice, the enduring story of the Bennet sisters and their quest for suitable marriages . Beyond bringing these stories to life, Bastin’s series adds elaborately designed ephemera, such as four-color maps, letters, family trees, and sheet music. Whether an ideal gift for an Austen or Brontë devotee or a treat for yourself, The Marjolein Bastin Classics Series, as a set or individually purchased is perfect for anyone who feels a connection to these enduring literary gems.

About the Author

Marjolein Bastin’s passion for the natural world is of a universal quality that appeals to people the world over. You can find Marjolein’s artwork on greeting cards, calendars, dinnerware, bedding, gifts, and many other products. But for Marjolein, only one thing remains important: spend every day behind her desk painting the natural world around her.

She also writes and illustrates children’s books featuring the endearing Vera the Mouse character, which she created. Through her art and words, Marjolein offers people a simple reminder to pause and enjoy nature and allow it to be a source of serenity, energy, and healing. Finding inspiration in a bird lighting on a branch or a leaf drying in the autumn sun, Marjolein takes long walks each afternoon to seek new ideas for her artwork and her writings. Marjolein and her husband, Gaston, divide their time between country homes in Holland, Switzerland, and in Missouri,  as well a tropical retreat in the Cayman Islands. Each setting provides a unique glimpse of what nature has to offer throughout the world. The couple has a son, Mischa, a daughter, Sanna, and two grandchildren.

A Collector''s Comparison (Marjolein Bastin vs. Barabara Heller)

I collect editions of "Pride and Prejudice" based purely on how pretty or interesting they are. This edition is both! I love the embossed linen texture of the binding, and the little foiled accents catch the light beautifully on my shelf. I agree with other reviewers that the floral illustrations do not seem to be particularly connected to the story, but they put me in mind of pressed flowers left between the pages, which gives a kind of vintage or nostalgic feel. And of course the illustrations themselves are lovely, very true to nature.

For me the real draw of this edition is the ephemera left between the pages. It''s a similar concept to Barbara Heller''s correspondence edition, which includes handwritten letters from the book, but a little different because it includes things other than letters. There''s a map, a family tree, a dance card, and some other interesting related bits. In terms of attention to detail, Barbara Heller''s edition is superior; each letter is painstakingly copied in calligraphy chosen for the individual character writing it, and the folding, postmarks and distressing are accurate to the period. But the ephemera tucked into this edition is more fun, and I think the copy itself is more readable (the Heller edition is large, thick, and has glassine envelope folders interspersed with the pages).

If you''re a collector and can only afford one, I recommend the Heller edition over this simply because the letters are just gorgeous. If you''re a collector and can afford both, I think both deserve a spot in any collection. But if you just want a lovely and interesting copy of "Pride and Prejudice" to read, as a gift or for yourself, you can''t go wrong with this edition. It''s high quality, readable, beautiful, and the ephemera helps draw you into the story world. This would be a particularly excellent gift for a teen classics reader.

This is an absolutely gorgeous edition, with beautiful floral and botanical illustrations throughout. I was blown away by the detail in these editions, the cover has texture and graining, there is a beautiful ribbon bookmark, and the letters, tickets, papers, etc that are tucked into the book really add a special touch. I hope they release more classics! Pride and Prejudice is my favorite novel and I own far too many editions already! This immediately became one of my favorite editions. The color palette of this edition with its vibrant purple and gold foil lettering on the black case is stunning. I need editions of Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion next please!

Front cover title sticker is a real bummer.
Reviewed in the United States on May 8, 2021
The only thing that I don’t like about this book is the title on the front cover. It’s a sticker, and mine just happens to be crooked, it’s really irritating and destroy the beauty of the book. I give it three stars for that reason.

This is undeniably a beautiful edition of the book! The gorgeous illustrations add a subtle beauty and warmth to the reading experience. The "extras" are fun, though arguably not necessary. I gave this 4/5 stars because the oval on the cover was crooked. (Another reviewer had the same problem.) This edition is meant to be a gift, so I am disappointed in that quality control issue. However, the overall aesthetic of the book is wonderful!

This book ( and it''s sister book Emma) are absolutely gorgous books. Just holding the book imparts a tactile ecstacy of anticipation of the contents. You will not be disappointed. The thought that has gone into them is extraordinary. There are many inserts such as letters in envelopes, recipies, maps and so much more. The book is an adventure in Jane Austen. The illustrations are a joy and Marjolein Bastin has created a masterpiece of artwork to complement the book. If you buy any books this year you MUST buy either this or Emma. These two books (there is one more I believe) will be collectable in a few years
