* Letters are hand-folded with painstaking attention to historical detail.

Review quote

"This exquisite book presents the novel's full text along with 19 letters 'handwritten' by Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, Caroline Bingley and others. Their notes, complete with appropriate postmarks, are dropped into pouches placed at just the right moments in the story. More than a gimmick, it's a dramatic way to experience the central role that correspondence plays in the novel." --The Washington Post Book Club
