May’s Classic Book Crate is now available! This month’s crate is based around the brilliant Persuasion by Jane Austen. There’s a variety of different bookish items inside, all of them sharing the cover’s aesthetic. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here’s a peek at the design!
Like what you see? You can grab your crate right here. Remember that the first ten new subscribers get this Persuasion themed sleep mask from our friends at Paper Plane Designs. It’s the perfect treat for any book lover.
Like all of her novels, Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ is filled with wonderful quotes. In celebration of this month’s crate launch, we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favourites.
"One man's ways may be as good as another's, but we all like our own best."
"My idea of good company, Mr. Elliot, is the company of clever, well-informed people, who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company."
"Give him a book, and he will read all day long."
"There was never any burst of feeling, any warmth of indignation or delight, at the evil or good of others. This, to Anne, was a decided imperfection. Her early impressions were incurable. She prized the frank, the open-hearted, the eager character beyond all others. Warmth and enthusiasm did captivate her still. She felt that she could so much more depend upon the sincerity of those who sometimes looked or said a careless or a hasty thing, than of those whose presence of mind never varied, whose tongue never slipped."
"How quick come the reasons for approving what we like."
"Facts or opinions which are to pass through the hands of so many, to be misconceive by folly in one, and ignorance in another can hardly have much truth left."
"You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope... I have loved none but you."
