About the Author

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was an English novelist known for her works which interpreted, critiqued and commented upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism.

Alice Pattullo is an illustrator and printmaker based in East London. She graduated in 2010 with a First Class Honours in Illustration from Brighton University. She works predominantly in screen print producing limited edition prints for sale in various outlets across the UK and online. Research is at the heart of her practice and her work is often inspired by British folk tradition and superstition.
