cool book. bad photos.

I finished this beautiful Pride and Prejudice-inspired book for a wonderful customer of mine this past week and after spending many hours perfecting its every detail apparently didn't have the sense to realize I was photographing the finished work in extremely poor light. Still, I think it's worthy of showing the outcome despite the terrible photos.
The final page is a quote from Pride and Prejudice, by Mr. Darcy, "I cannot fix on the hour, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun." Stitched in Jane Austen font.

It's a very personalized book so some things may not make sense to the casual viewer but hopefully it will be a cherished keepsake for the family and their newest addition.


  1. OK insert expletives, because I suppose it's too classy of a book to write it in print, but can't help but say it in my head. How did you do this?? It's wonderful and lovely and exquisitely Jane. Nicely done V!

  2. STUNNING! You really are an amazing artist.
