A beautiful paperback edition of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, featuring a lively, patterned watercolour cover and an introduction by Andrew Motion.
This bright and beautiful edition would serve as a delightful introduction for new readers of Austen, and would make a lovely gift.
Emma was Jane Austen’s fourth published novel, and is now often thought of as her most brilliant work.
Emma is young, rich and independent. She has decided not to get married and instead spends her time organising her acquaintances' love affairs. Her plans for the matrimonial success of her new friend Harriet, however, lead her into complications that ultimately test her own detachment from the world of romance.
The Vintage Classics Austen Series presents Jane Austen’s essential works, redesigned in charming watercolour by writer and illustrator Leanne Shapton, and introduced by some of today's finest contemporary writers and Austen fans.
