“It sometimes happens that a woman is handsomer at twenty-nine than she was ten years before.” --from Jane Austen’s Persuasion
Presumably, one could replace “twenty-nine” in the quotation above with “thirty-nine” or, ahem, substantially higher numbers, right? We think so. And we love the Jane Austen Birthday Bookfor keeping track of loved ones’ birthdays the old-fashioned way. Elegant illustrations, witty quotes from Austen’s letters and novels, and info about each month’s birthstone, birth flower, and astrological signs round out this lovely and literary little birthday book. Available from Bas Bleu.
