Staff Reviews


Jane Eyre is such a great book. I’ve read it a couple of times in my life and it keeps getting better. Take an orphan’s rise through traumatic abuse and follow her into life post-school as a Governess for the enigmatic Mr. Rochester. The gothic twists in this book are wonderful and Jane’s moving voice still rings true even centuries later. How can you not love this book?

— From Krys

Description


An iconic novel dressed in a fierce design by acclaimed fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo. This couture-inspired collection also features The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula, The Scarlet Letter, Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice.

Orphaned Jane Eyre endures an unhappy childhood, hated by her aunt and cousins and then sent to comfortless Lowood School. But life there improves and Jane stays on as a teacher, though she still longs for love and friendship. At Mr Rochester's house, where she goes to work as a governess, she hopes she might have found them - until she learns the terrible secret of the attic.
