You can't judge a book by its cover
Repackaging Jane Austen is all the rage, so that if you want to update your copy, you now have plenty of cover styles to choose from.
As well as the traditional fine art covers still being used on older editions of Pride and Prejudice, you can also buy pastel covers by going for the new Headline editions.
And in case you don't like fine art covers, and are not tempted by Headline's pastel covers, then Bloomsbury are now publishing Pride and Prejudice in a new cover as well.
They are going a step further and publishing the book with a new introduction by Meg Cabot,too. So if you have a teenager in the house, and you want to encourage her to read Pride and Prejudice, this might be the edition for you.
